Come out of the cold and into the tropics for a lively performance by Ballet Folklorico Mexico. The Milwaukee-based Mexican dance troupe will kick off the Children of the Rainforest series for families at Olbrich with high-energy performances. Ballet Folklorico performers will take you through different regions and traditions of Mexico with their energetic dancing, lively drumming, and lavish costumes.
From the authentic dress and dances of the Aztec empire to the famous Mexican Hat Dance and more, the musicians and dancers will bring to life many cultures and traditions of Mexico. The spectacular costumes - some with impressively tall feathered headdresses - are sure to captivate audiences of all ages. After the performances you can enjoy the warmth and greenery of Madison’s own tropics, the Bolz Conservatory!
The Children of the Rainforest series offers performances for families to celebrate cultural differences in rainforest regions around the world and is made possible by a gift from William Wartmann.
