UMS 101: Ballet Folklórico

 

Ballet Folklórico de México founder Amalia Hernández was a trained ballet and modern dancer. Drawn to the traditions of more than 60 regions in Mexico, Amalia choreographed dance performances that celebrate the country’s indigenous legends and traditions dating back to the pre-Columbian era. Amalia’s anthropological approach to dance performance is a veritable living cultural history of Mexico. Explore some of the signature movements and roots of this colorful and dynamic artform.

Join us on February 3 to explore some of the signature movements and roots of this colorful and dynamic art form in this 90-minute UMS 101 workshop that correlates with the February 6, 2022 UMS performance of Ballet Folklórico de México de Amalia Hernández. Facilitated by Susana Quintanilla, founder and director of El Ballet Folklórico Estudantil of Flint, the workshop will offer historical background and contextual learning, live demonstrations, and participatory activities, all celebrating the vibrant culture of Mexico. Deepen your experience and understanding in advance of the performance in a fun, casual learning environment.

$49 registration includes the 90-minute workshop & light snacks, plus a ticket to the February 6 performance of Ballet Folklórico de México de Amalia Hernández. (Please note, performance is on a different day/time/location than the workshop. Sorry, no ticket exchanges or refunds for previously purchased tickets.)
