Ballet Folklórico de Los Ángeles, accompanied by the Grammy-winning Mariachi Garibaldi, brings the spirit of Cinco de Mayo to the Performing Arts Center at Georgia Southern.

Founded in 2011, Ballet Folklórico de Los Ángeles (BFLA) catapulted to international fame when they danced at the 90th Annual Academy Awards in celebration of the Pixar movie, “Coco,” and through their special appearance on “Dancing with the Stars.”

Most recently, they are excited to be a part of the new Disney live production of “Coco” which is set for streaming on Disney+.

Though young, BFLA has already distinguished itself as the nation’s premier Mexican folk dance company. This versatile group performs both traditional and modern regional dances in world-class venues across the globe.

Accompanied onstage by the live musicians of Mariachi Garibaldi, led by three-time Grammy winner Jimmy K.Cuéllar, BFLA will leave you spellbound with precise, elegant movement and dazzling costumes.
