“What New York City Ballet’s George Balanchine did with the folkloric dances of his native Russia, Ballet Nepantla is doing with the folkloric dances of Mexico.” (New York Latin Culture Magazine, February 2019)
The way dancers show emotion in hand stretches and
foot movements make the traditional "zapateado" look more modern. " It can serve as an example to encourage other Latino children to fight
to achieve their dreams. "
-Estefanía Hernández, El Diario NYC (September 2017)
“Valentina” explores the in-between-ness of cultures within the realm of dance, harmonizing traditional Mexican Folklorico with contemporary and classic ballet.
Founder and Artistic Director Andrea Guajardo is a native of the Rio Grande Valley and looks forward to engaging Valley audiences through Ballet Nepantla’s artistic innovation.
