NEW! To the Ballet Folklorico Co. Studio...MODERN DANCE! Modern Dance calls for Creative Expression allowing you to express yourself in a manner that is good for the body and soul!
Modern Dance will be taught by the talented Instructor Rafael Garcia Cruz. Rafael began dancing at the age of 10 at the Ollin Yoliztli Cultural Center in Mexico City where he studied theater, modern dance, jazz, folklorico, art history and music. At the age of 20, Rafael was accepted into the University of Colima, Mexico and began his undergraduate studies in “Danza Escenica” (Theatre and Dance) and also became a member of the internationally known Ballet Folklórico de La Universidad de Colima de Rafael Zamarripa. While in the company he traveled to perform in the best theaters in Mexico, including El Auditorio Nacional and El Teatro Degollado. Rafael completed his Licenciatura en Danza Escenica (B.A. in Theater and Dance) in 2016. His areas of expertise include choreography, traditional Mexican Folk Dance, Arial dance, theater, and modern dance (Limon, Horton and Graham Technique).
Rafael Garcia currently gives workshops throughout Mexico and the United States and serves as Co-Director for “Contradanza” a Mexican Folk Dance company located in Mexico City.
