With infectious energy and rich pageantry, Balé Folclórico brings to life the rich culture of Bahia, a region of northern Brazil influenced by enslaved Africans as well as Portuguese, Spanish, and indigenous Native American cultures. From Samba to Capoeira (an Afro-Brazilian art form that combines martial arts and dance), this troupe of over 30 exuberant performers fills the theater with thrilling folkloric choreography, joyous song, explosive percussion, and feisty, irrepressible energy!

Links to Spanish, history of South America & African diaspora, indigenous peoples, and physical fitness.
