The USA National Folklorico Awards Competition Association was started to establish a consistent and coordinated series of events that will attain national recognition. The competitions and showcase events will always be open to all groups.
Several professional dancers came together in order to establish an organization that will provide forums and exposure to all the talent that exists while performing Folklorico dances. The goal is to hold Folklorico competitions annually throughout the United States as a showcase of its artistic beauty and of the magnificent talent, that interprets it.
THE STARS OF THESE EVENTS ARE THE DANCERS AND DIRECTORS. USA National Folklorico Awards Competition Association will only sponsor and coordinate the events; we are not a dance group.
These competitions will give the artists the opportunity to dance in the best halls and theaters, in front of huge audiences, and with the accessibility of talent agents. All this will require developing that discipline that is necessary to be good enough to be a champion.
The USA National Folklorico Awards Competition Association will provide the framework for this to happen. Professional dancers will judge the performances of the dancers. They will insist that the proper techniques of dance be used, that steps and movements be precise and artistic. Those with the talent, desire and work ethic will be rewarded. The USA National Folklorico Awards Competition Association will be a clearinghouse to casting agents for dancing talent.
The USA National Folklorico Awards Competition Association is committed to continuously provide quality competitive opportunities and forums, for dancers and teachers to showcase their skills and continue developing their dancing careers. We are dedicated to promoting discipline, pride, techniques, ethics, and cultural awareness in a healthy family oriented atmosphere.
In our Sixteenth years, we continue to be one of the premier Mexican Folklorico and Latin dance competition organizations in the United States.
We have been true to our Mission of providing performance opportunities and as ambassadors of all Folklorico Groups in the USA.
Over 127 groups and more than 1,725 dancers have now participated in our first fourteen seasons. We have now organized over 46 official dance competitions.
