Celebrate 10 Years Of Dance, Music and Hispanic Culture at Ballet Folklorico Quetzalli-AZ’s Anniversary Showcase on Saturday, June 16th in Chandler

Ballet Folklorico Quetzalli-AZ (BFQ-AZ) under the direction of Vanessa Ramirez, is celebrating 10 years of culture and tradition on Saturday, June 16, 2018 at the Chandler Center for the Arts. Come along as BFQ-AZ takes a dynamic musical journey through Mexico by way of dance music accompanied by special guests, Mariachi Sonido de Mexico, and Banda Sinaloense La Llega Finix. Tickets are just $15 per person, online. The show will start at 6 p.m. with a wide variety of student dance performances.

Ramirez first opened her dance studio ten years ago with the hopes of teaching traditional Mexican dance to the children of her friends, family and even her own daughter. She had no idea the impact she’d make on the community and speed at which her business would grow.

“When I first started 10 years ago, I had just six students and today we have over 100 dance students! We offer more classes, performances and opportunities to expand our students’ knowledge of Mexican culture. It’s been an amazing experience for our student, families and community,” said Vanessa Ramirez, director, Ballet Folklorico Quetzalli-AZ.

In addition to dance, students at Ballet Folklorico Quetzalli-AZ participate in cultural education projects that help to build public speaking skills, confidence, poise and appreciation for the Hispanic culture.
