Ballet Folklorico Bell Arts

Bell Arts Factory has been the home to Ballet Folklorico Bell Arts for the past 4 years offering the beautiful art of Mexican Folklore dance to our community. Our group has grown to 21 members ranging from 10 to 45 years of age. It has served as an outlet for those who want to participate in extra-curricular activities, exercise, social participation and most importantly the chance to be able to learn about the beautiful Mexican culture through dance.

Ballet Folklorico Bell Arts has performed in different venues around Southern California and Ventura County including area schools, retirement homes, churches and city events. We have participated in several Southern California competitions bringing home 1st and 2nd place. We have also received the honor of participating in opening night televised festivities for Santa Barbara Fiesta for the past 2 years.

We are constantly learning new regional dances in order to increase our repertoire. At this time, it includes: Jalisco, Veracruz, Chiapas, Hidalgo and Baja California. All costumes are purchased through fundraising and donations and performances. Come experience and enjoy the beautiful folklore of Mexico. Uplift your spirits with its’ music, dancing and colorful outfits. Children from 10 to 100 years of age are encouraged to come and participate in this extraordinary culture.

Classes are offered free of charge on Tuesday and Thursdays, 5:30 to 7:30pm.
