BFLA is a world-class dance company from an orphanage known as Casa Hogar Los Angelitos in Manzanillo, Colima, Mexico, founded by Nancy Nystrom. Since August 2003, this dance group has been an important part of the educational curriculum offered by Casa Hogar, offering children the opportunity to develop life-changing values, social skills, and self-confidence and to help them overcome the traumas of their past.

“We are thrilled to team up with Performing Arts Houston, Goya Foods, Telemundo, and Que Onda Magazine to bring a first-class show to Houston,” said Marisol Nunez Mendez, Mariachi Festival Board Member. “This group puts on a spectacular show with highly choreographed dances and exquisite costumes. This is a free event for all. Bring the family and enjoy this traditional ballet folklorico performance. Every move, dress, and song have a meaning. We are proud of our culture and we want to share it with others.”

BFLA has been touring Mexico, Peru, the United States, and Canada since 2009. Through these annual international tours, BFLA brings the beauty of the Mexican culture and its history to other parts of the world, creating an important understanding and appreciation through dance and music.

Currently, BFLA has a total of eighty (80) dancers. Their performances include dances from Colombia and the Mexican states of Veracruz, Nayarit, Jalisco, Michoacan, Yucatan, and Colima.

“We invite you to our 4th Annual Mariachi Festival at Houston’s Wortham Theater on August 18-20, 2023, featuring Mariachi Mariposas, Mariachi 7 Leguas, Mariachi Imperial de America, the University of Houston Mariachi Pumas, and the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley Ballet Folklórico,” said Macaria Mendez, Mariachi Festival Board Chair.
