Ballet Folkloric Mexico Azteca (BFMA) will perform at Mayville State University from 7 to 8 p.m. Friday, Sept. 30. The performance of Mexican dances will take place in the Classroom Building Auditorium. The public is invited to attend. There is no admission charge.
BMFA comes from Minneapolis and is formed by individuals with Mexican heritage, representing the various states of Mexico. The group has rapidly become one of the most esteemed Mexican folk dance companies in the Upper Midwest. Founded in 2009, the troupe has been under the artistic leadership of Edgar Galvan, one of its principal dancers. A highly valued cultural and artistic resource throughout the Minnesota region, the BFMA boasts a repertoire that includes traditional folkloric dance pieces as well as indigenous rituals that are fused with elements from contemporary movement.
The performance of BFMA at Mayville State is part of Hispanic Heritage Month at Mayville State University, which is being sponsored by the MSU Office of Diversity and Inclusion.
