Ballet Folklorico from Back of the Yards

The Ballet Folklorico of the Back of the Yards Council celebrates its 15th anniversary this weekend with performances at 5:30 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday at Morton East High School, 2423 S. Austin in Cicero.

With over 200 participants in groups “ranging from teenie tots to grandparents,” it’s one of the Council’s most successful programs, said Patty Flores.  Three advanced groups give public performances throughout the year and have won national championships four times. 

All the groups will be featured this weekend, presenting folkloric dance styles and music from regions across Mexico, from the mountains to the coastal areas.  Tickets cost $18 and are still available; call (773) 523-4416.
