Ballet Folklorico de Durango seeks dancers and performers to join the traditional Mexican dance group, which performs publicly for events at venues across the Four Corners.
The program is part of El Centro de Muchos Colores at Fort Lewis College.
Youth and adult classes are offered for all levels, abilities and experience, and new dancers from any background are welcome to participate.
Classes for fall semester begin Monday, Aug. 28, at 5:30 p.m. in El Centro, on the ground floor of the student union building at FLC. Youth ages 5-18 and community members of any age may enroll and scholarships are available.
The cost is $60/dancer for the semester. For households enrolling two or more dancers, the second dancer is half the tuition price. FLC students pay no fee.
All practices are held Mondays at 5:30-6:30 p.m. at Fort Lewis College’s El Centro Room 40, located in the Student Union Building across from the bookstore. Registration details are available online atwww.fortlewis.edu/elcentro, or can be completed in person on the first day of classes.
Costumes and shoes are available for all students who choose to perform, and all dancers must participate in some fundraising activities to supplement program costs.
Scholarships are available for students, and donations are accepted to assist the scholarship program and Ballet Folklorico de Durango. Tax-deductible donations can be mailed to the FLC Foundation Office, with the words “Ballet” in the memo.
