Ballet Folklorico Begins

Dancing Ballet Folklorico Machetes.fw

During the machete dance.

We signed our oldest up for classes in ballet folklorico. The first class was Thursday.

Dance class. Anti-Blackness off top (a family came around the corner and saw us sitting on a bench. The parents looked at each other, grabbed their kid, backed away and chose to sit on the other end of the space). The instructor was late AND didn’t speak English (the class is through the city). Most of the instruction was for the girls. Mid-way through folks loosened up though … it was cute seeing him dance with a little partner.

3 more classes to go.
