Ballet Folkorico La Paloma is a non-profit organization dedicated to perpetuating the native folk dances of Mexico. By doing so, we hope to arouse pride and heritage in the Mexican- American community.
We also educate the general public through our
colorful and entertaining performances. Ballet Folklorico La Paloma has responded to the need
of positive and responsive programs for young
people in our community since 1982.
Through the reinvestment of time, funds, and energy we have been able to help develop positive, and committed young people who will make a better future for generations to come.
It is an honor for Ballet Folklorico La Paloma to have been asked to perform at the Olympics, once again!
We have officially performed at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London England.
