[This page is preserved for historical and reference purposes only. The information contained on it may no longer be current.]
The Ballet Folklorico Mexico is performing at the University of Wisconsin-Fox Valley in Menasha on October 5 at noon in the Student Union. The performance is free and open to the public. The ballet is an authentic Mexican folk dance troupe that uses dance, costumes and original music to interpret authentic Mexican traditions. On stage, 3 to 25 dancers explore ceremonial rituals originating in the traditions of the Aztecas, Michoacan and more.
The ballet is the inaugural event on the UWFox Campus Activities Board calendar of fall lecture and fine art events. Distinguished speakers and performers appear in the UWFox student union or theatre at noon on specified dates. Jeff Kuepper, student activities director at UWFox, works collaboratively with other area schools and campuses to efficiently bring distinguished acts and speakers to as many venues as possible. Since students at UWFox are primarily commuters, noon events conveniently coincide with their schedules. “We strive to entertain, educate and inform our audiences,” he explained. All of these noon performances and speakers are free and open to the public.
