Folklorico at Boris Elementary – 2023-2024
  • Goal
    1. Boris Elementary’s Folklorico Group will be composed of students who enjoy learning some of the traditions of the Mexican culture.  These traditions will be expressed through music, song, and dance.   Our goal is to teach cultural appreciation and provide an arena for artistic expression.  
  • 3rd – 6th grade Practices are throughout the year primarily on Mondays. There will be some Tuesday practices when Monday is a holiday and a couple of Saturday practices when we get closer to our annual show in March.
  • Kindergarten – 2nd grade
    1. There will be a separate clinic (March 2024) for our younger students.  All students who come to the clinic will perform in our annual show! More information will come out in Feb. 2024 to let you know how to sign your child up and the exact date and location of the clinic. 
  • Parent Help

    1. You do NOT have to buy costumes.  There will be smaller items (nylons, white tank tops, jeans, black pants, make-up, etc.) that you might need to provide for your child, but these are not mandatory.   I will provide the costumes.
