The Folklórico Festival of Texas is committed to the
- Hispanic students in higher education.
- Hispanic participation in college and university dance programs.
- The study of folklórico at the college/university level as a
curricular and extra-curricular activity.
The presence of college university programs at our festival is an
important component for the future success of Hispanic dance students and
the future success of folklórico as a field of study within the college and university
curriculum. The participation of the University of Texas- Pan American ,
Ballet Folklorico Huehuecoyotl from Elgin Community College, and St. Edwards
our festival have set the standards for colleges participation. This impact
extends beyond North Texas because groups traveled from as far as
St. Edwards University California
and Illinois to our festival.
College and University groups are encouraged to participate
in the festival whether or not they have folklórico curricular or
extra-curricular programs. College and University students that do not take
part in established folklórico programs may participate at the Festival in the
FREE Fun Beginner Workshops, serve as a
volunteer, or by just sitting in the audience and enjoying the various presentations.
Merely viewing the festival is an educational experience. Last year,
the dance traditions of twenty-nine of Mexico's thirty-two states were
represented at the festival.
Established college and university
folklórico programs are encouraged to set up a FREE information
booth, participate in the master
classes with the Maestros de Mexico, present
showcase performances, to compete, and to submit works
for pre-adjudication for La Gran Competencia de Cuadros Folklóricos.
All competition events solo, duet/trio, small group, large group,
production, cuadro and the Gran Competencia are open to college students.
