Ballet Folklorico Girasol

Marilu Torres, Founder and Director

We are a non-profit organization, our budget is limited, and we have always experienced difficulty finding a physical space where we can practice. In fact, we have had to practice outside many times suffering the inclement weather. In one instance we were asked to practice with socks over our shoes so as not to damage the floor. We have not been given an opportunity to have a decent and private place for our practices. 

I believe that keeping students busy and learning about their roots helps them feel proud of who they are. It helps them to function better, to have better confidence in themselves. It teaches them to live with other people who share the same interests and above all what they express through their art, they help others who appreciate our culture and traditions.
