Ballet Folklorico Mexicano de Nueva York

BFMNY was Awarded by the Brooklyn Arts Council
Ballet Folklorico Mexicano de Nueva York started this 2013 year with good news. The organization has been awarded a grant from the Brooklyn Arts Council (BAC) Community Arts Fund. The award is in support of the BFMNY’s project GUELAGUETZA Festival 2013.

The BFMNY’s objective is to add the Guelaguetza to its repertoire because of its importance for Oaxaca (a UNESCO world heritage city) and Mexico; and to maintain a link of cultural communication and exchange between Mexico and the US. The Gelaguetza is a culturally rich festival and tradition that comes from the state of Oaxaca, Mexico in which various indigenous communities share their traditions and participate in a cultural exchange involving artistic aspects ranging from textiles and dress, food, dance and musical instruments. La Guelaguetza represents the organizing principle of life in the villages, and helps to reinforce social ties among neighbors.

BFMNY is profoundly grateful to the Northeast Chapter of the U.S.-Mexico Chamber of Commerce, for the opportunity to inform the general public about the Ballet events, projects and festivities. By their attendance, the members of the USMCOCNE has brought BFMNY an immense support during our performances and greatly contributed to the success of all our major presentations in New York, Connecticut and New Jersey.
