Ballet Folklorico Ollin - Mexican Folk Dance
Ballet Folklorico Ollin brings the culture of Mexico to Silicon Beach through the songs of Veracruz. Presented by the Ford Theatre Foundation, this interactive dance gives audience members the opportunity to join in and dance along to the rhythms that come from this eastern Mexican state. Participants will perform on tarimas (wooden dance platforms) – so wear shoes you can make some noise in!
