Ballet Folklorico accepting performance requests for Cinco de Mayo

Ballet Folklorico de Durango is accepting performance requests for any spring 2017 and Cinco de Mayo related events. Ballet Folklorico de Durango is a unique cultural arts program for students in the region to learn and perform traditional Mexican dances. Our performers range in age from kindergarten to college students and adults.

Performances are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis and the dance group suggests a donation of $100 when booking a performance. To request a performance, please visit this website to submit a request form: https://www.fortlewis.edu/elcentro/BalletFolkloricodeDurango/RequestaPerformance.aspx

The dance program is continuing this year because of generous support from CJ's Diner, Brennan Oil, previous Mercury Gives and LPEA grants, as well as the donations from community members and supporters. To support the sustainability of this program with student scholarships and costumes, donations may be made to FLC Foundation with Ballet Folkorico in the memo.

As always, new and experienced dancers are invited to join Ballet Folklorico de Durango. Classes are held every Monday from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. at El Centro de Muchos Colores Hispano Resource Center at Fort Lewis College. El Centro is located on the ground floor of the Student Union across from the bookstore. For more information, visit www.fortlewis/edu, or contact El Centro at 247-7654.

Thank you for your consideration, and have a wonderful Cinco de Mayo!
