In 2005, Ballet Folklórico De Colores was formed by Sergio Padilla, interested parents and teachers from Puente de Hózhó Bilingual School to teach and perform the beautiful folk dances from Mexico for our Flagstaff community. The organization filed for 501 (c) (3) status that year. Ballet Folklórico De Colores is a community, non-profit organization dedicated to teaching and performing traditional Mexican folk dances. Our mission is to provide a quality dance experience to children in the Flagstaff community at an affordable rate. We pride ourselves in being an inclusive organization that fosters cultural diversity. We provide educational experiences for community youth, with outreach to the Flagstaff community in the performing arts. We promote and preserve traditional Mexican folk dance.
