Mexican Folkloric

Folkloric Dance is a bright, colorful and exuberant representation of Mexican culture, performed to traditional and contemporary Mexican music. Students have the opportunity to be immersed in this rich culture through the teaching of technical foot work, steps, and skirt work. Students also learn the history of each dance and state in Mexico. Instructor Adelita Dixon-Hernandez is dedicated and passionate about bringing the beauty and excitement of folkloric dance to the OKC community. Mexican Folklorico classes are available to ages 5 to adult.

Dress Code: Folkloric practice skirt, Skin-Colored footed tights, black leotard, and Mexican folkloric shoes with nails. Hair should be pulled back in a neat Folklorico-Style bun with Tocado, pinned in with lots of bobby pins. Your instructor may require a certain shoe color for end-of-year recital, but will let you know by December, to allow you plenty of time to purchase. Recital costumes can be purchased or rented, both through EGD. All female students will be required to provide their own bloomers and traditional gold folklorico earrings. Ask the front desk or your instructor for more information.
