Supplies for Ballet Folklorico Dancers

Help me give my students dresses, ties, and sombreros so they can have the opportunity to dress how ballet folklorico companies do when they perform.

My Students

My students are in a 100% free or reduced-price breakfast/lunch Title I school. My students are an amazing and dedicated group. They are committed to making sure that they perfect the routines they learn. They have made our Ballet Folklorico Dance team a fun experience by encouraging others and ensuring that even though the goal is to perform, everyone is still enjoying what they are doing and that the environment is stress- and pressure-free. Performing Ballet Folklorico without a typical folklorico outfit just doesn't feel the same.

My Project

Ballet Folklorico is a new club at our school that teaches students how to dance some of Mexico's traditional dances. Because it is a new club, it is a small club. My intention is to have a few authentic folklorico outfits for students to use for their performances.

The mariachi traje will help my dancers demonstrate their hard work and celebrate Mexican culture with the community.

Without the costumes, they cannot perform nor attend competitions. I want them to be able to experience what it's like to share a beautiful aspect of Mexican culture with the rest of their school. Having the proper attire will make a world of difference, the difference between being a small group that few know about and being a group on campus that people will want to join in order to experience the joy of connecting to Mexican culture through traditional dance.
