Ballet Folklorico Quetzalli-AZ, Inc is a 501(c)(3) organization celebrating the colorful tradition of Mexican folkloric dance. Led by an experienced dancer, Vanessa Ramirez, the group began as a recreational class. As one of very few East Valley folklorico groups currently operating, interest in the dance troupe has grown rapidly from just 6 students in June of 2005 to more than 60 currently. Our students range in age from 3 years old – adult and enjoy an exciting and fun way to express themselves through dance and learn about Hispanic heritage. In June of 2012, Ballet Folklorico Quetzalli-AZ opened its doors to their very own dance studio.
“I am SO THANKFUL for having all of you in my life and for having the honor of working with your children. They are all so amazing, full of energy and they truly are a blessing in my life.”
– Vanessa Ramirez, Director
