|BF: Ballet Folklorico Mexicano de Yale||Ballet Folklorico Mexicano de Yale College was founded during the 1998-
1999 school year in an effort to bring a greater awareness of Mexican
culture to the Yale and greater Connecticut communities. Because all of
our dances are historical in nature, we take interest in preserving the
authenticity of each region’s distinctive traditions. Whenever possible, we
strive to incorporate a substantial educational component, which is often
lost to the beautiful nature of such dancing. As a university student group,
and especially as a Yale organization, we also feel an obligation to teach our audiences some of the history of Mexican folk culture. The goals of our
organization are diverse and ambitious: while we seek to foster a spirited
Mexican dance group for Yale students and community members of all
backgrounds, we strive to become a cultural resource for the city of New
Haven, as well as the greater state of Connecticut.
