Africa meets Mexico…in Aspen!

Aug 1, 2014

For the second year in a row, the Aspen Santa Fe Ballet brought Batoto Yetu’s dance company to Aspen for a cross cultural exchange and performance with ASFB’s Folklórico. As Batoto Yetu provides African dance training and performance opportunities for children in Harlem, Folklórico enriches the lives of children through free, after-school instruction in Mexican folkloric dance. During the week in Aspen, our young artists danced in the mountains of Colorado and performed for the Aspen community and supporters of ASFB at the Aspen District Theatre on July 26. This performance was emblematic of Aspen Santa Fe Ballet’s continuing commitment to preserving and providing access to dance heritage.
