Mexican Folk Dance – ¡Olé!

Teaching Artist: Eileen Wolfington

Mexican folk dance is an exciting and colorful art form. Each dance is an emotional expression that preserves traditions so that it does not become a lost art. Dance helps to improve a child’s flexibility and balance, engage all the muscle groups, and increase their focus. The impact on their mental wellbeing will deepen their self-discovery, create social bonds, and allow for emotional expression. The teaching artist will guide the group to learn simple dance steps and movements and provide vibrantly colored props such as Mexican sombreros, sarapes (Mexican blankets), flowers, rebozos (shawls), and maracas. On the last day, the children will be prepared to present one or two simple dances as a group.
