AIBF News

On Saturday, April 1st, our Advanced Level students competed in the 2017 Houston Baile Ballet Folklorico Competition hosted by Talento Bilingue de Houston.  

 

We entered into various categories and are proud to announce that our dancers won 1st in the Estado de Sonora category and 2nd in the Estado de Tamaulipas!

 

We are beyond proud of our dancers and instructors for their hard work and commitment.  They endured many long practices in the weeks leading up to the competition and it is clear that their hard work paid off!!

 

AIBF would like to extend our sincerest thanks to not just our dancers and instructors, but also to our parents who have continued to sacrifice their time and efforts for their children's love for folklorico and AIBF's mission.  We'd also like to express our gratitude to Talento Bilingue de Houston for granting us the opportunity to compete.

 

We can't wait for 2018 so that we can compete again and bring home the overall group win!  Thank you to all for your support!
