About Ballet Folklorico Ritmo Alegre

 

Ballet Folklorico Ritmo Alegre is a Southern Oregon dance troupe that teaches and performs regional folk dances of Mexico to instill pride and create cultural bridges.

We are known for our authenticity, and we strive to validate Mexico's long and rich folk dance tradition in our choreography and costumes. 

 

We regularly participate in workshops and conferences to increase our skills and repertoire. 

 

We are also known for empowering youth.  The purpose of the group has always been two-fold: to preserve and celebrate Mexican folk culture, and empower and celebrate  the youth who are cultural ambassadors to our diverse community of Southern Oregon.
