Ballet Folklorico Connects To My Mexican Culture

Chiapas was the first dance I learned and the first dance to perform solo. I remember being excited and nervous!

I connected with my Mexican culture by learning ballet folklorico. It was a special time in my life. Through the dances I learned of the different regions of Mexico.

I remember how we were taught to dance with pride! During high school, it was a way for me to express pride without knowing the Spanish language. I’m not a fluent Spanish speaker. However, during practice and on stage, I could be proud of my Mexican culture without judgement.
