Ballet Folklorico y Matachines Club

Ballet Folklorico is a very exciting club to join and available at SJB! It not only teaches you how to become an experienced dancer, it teaches you about the Spanish culture as well. Ballet Folklorico originated in Mexico and grew. Ballet Folklorico consists of some basic set of steps called “zapateados” which involve a lot of heel-stomping. There are many different dances from many different regions from Mexico. The most popular dance is called “El Jarape Tapatio” which originated from Jalisco and is performed across Mexico and all over the U.S.
