Ballet Folklorico Herencia de Mexico is the performing arm of the Latin Art Organization of Arkansas (LAOA). Dance instruction is available to all interested individuals, and the dancers in Ballet Folklorico range from the young enthusiastic 6-year-old to the experienced adult dancer. Reflecting the traditions, customs, and lifestyles of various regions in Mexico, the beautifully costumed dancers showcase the excitement of folk dances at festivals through Arkansas.

The professional dance instructors at Ballet Folklorico Herencia de Mexico have 20 of years of combined experience in the art of Ballet Folklorico. Led by Araceli Lopez, our dancers performed at events all around Northwest Arkansas. Ballet Folklorico Herencia de Mexico is also one of the only studios in the region that has traveled to Las Vegas, Nevada, to train with the Dance Masters of Ballet Folklorico Nacional Aztlan de Silvia Lozano.

The company offers children’s dance lessons for children as young as 6 years of age. In addition to learning the traditional dances from the various States in Mexico, the students have the opportunity learn respect for the culture, the language, and geography of the country.
