AIBF Meets the Challenges of COVID-19

AIBF - the "A" is for adapt!! 

 

AIBF has encountered many challenges over the past 42 years, but none quite like the challenges that the COVID-19 pandemic has presented in 2020.  We are so proud of our administration, maestros, families and dancers for coming together during these times to adapt and find creative ways to continue our mission and doing what we love to do most - teaching and learning ballet folklorico!  

While we continue to monitor the evolving COVID-19 situation in Houston, AIBF has decided to move its weekly practices to an outside plaza in the heart of East End Houston for the forseeable future.  It is with great pride that we made this decision knowing that not only does it allow us to safely continue our programming, but it also gives us the opportunity to showcase the heart and soul of the Hispanic culture every Monday and Wednesday evening to our community that has supported us for so long.  

 

All families, dancers and maestros adhere to the City of Houston's mask ordinance and are able to safely practice outdoors, socially distant with tarimas (shallow wooden boxes).  

 

The health and safety of our dancers and families is our number one priority and will continue to be as we navigate these uncertain times with our city and country.  

 

For any questions regarding or to request a copy of AIBF's COVID-19 policy, please contact our office via email at ambassadorsibf@hotmail.com
