Ballet Folklórico Arrives At San Elizario’s Alfonso Borrego Sr. Elementary

San Elizario ISD’s Alfonso Borrego Sr. Elementary has a colorful, new team set to take center stage during the upcoming holidays.

Griselda Ramos, 4th grade bilingual teacher at Borrego Elementary, is also the instructor of the new after school folklórico club called Miztli Folklórico.

“I am really excited to have the opportunity to introduce the art of folklórico to the students of Borrego Elementary,” Ramos said. “These type of programs helps build their self-esteem and also teaches them about respect and responsibility.”

The club consists of 10 boys and 10 girls of grade levels 1st through 6th and practice is held twice a week after school for about an hour each day.

Their latest performance was at the school’s annual Thanksgiving Luncheon where they performed in front of a large crowd of parents.

“You should have heard the round of applause they received,” said Norma Casillas, Principal at Borrego Elementary.

“I am so proud of them. It took a lot for them to get up on stage and dance in front of so many people. I am delighted to have a folklórico club at our campus because I know it is going to be very popular with our students in the years to come.”

“When you dance folklórico, it is all about having fun. It is a form of entertainment,” Ramos said. “I always tell my students to try new things because they never know how good they are until they give it a try. Once they see that anything is possible, they become more confident.”

Miztli Folklórico’s next performance will be on December 18th for Borrego Elementary’s Holiday Extravaganza event.
