ASPEN SANTA FE BALLET FOLKLÓRICO
From early in its beginnings, Aspen Santa Fe Ballet has been committed to facilitating educational programs that enrich the lives of children and inspire a new generation of creative thinkers and artists. Healthy, safe, and free after-school programs offer educational opportunities for children of all ages, many of whom may not otherwise have a chance to experience movement education and dance performance.
Operating throughout the school year, Aspen Santa Fe Ballet Folklórico’s free after-school program is available to children at Ramirez Thomas Elementary, Cesar Chavez Elementary, Piñon Elementary, Ortiz Middle School and Sweeney Elementary School.
The program offers inspiration, education, and recreation. The classes target children from grades K-12, and teach the culture, arts and crafts, and music of Mexico, along with its traditional dances. Classes are taught in both English and Spanish.
Program director Francisco Nevarez sees the award-winning activity as a lifeline to a generation of children. Aspen Santa Fe Ballet Folklórico exposes youngsters to the richness of Mexican heritage and culture, presenting a balance of instruction and fun. The youth engage in performance opportunities in both communities as well as other cities in the Southwest, including Denver, Las Vegas, Albuquerque and Grand Junction.
Aspen Santa Fe Ballet Folklórico provides dynamic experiences for children, the effects reaching outside the walls of the classroom as they go out into their communities and beyond to share their confidence and skills, teamwork and leadership.
