Ballet Folklorico De Los Angeles

Artistic Director: Kareli Montoya

Ballet Folklorico de Los Angeles catapulted to international fame when they danced at the 90th Annual Academy Awards in celebration of the Pixar movie, Coco, also performing on the Disney live production of Coco which debuted at the Hollywood Bowl in November 2019 and streams on Disney+. Founded in 2011 by Kareli Montoya, BFLA has worked on stage with Grammy Award winners Lila Downs, Pepe Aguilar, Mariachi Divas and Mariachi Camperos. While accompanying prestigious groups like Mariachi Vargas and Mariachi Garibaldi de Jaime Cuéllar onstage, their precise movements and colorful costumes, designed by Kareli Montoya and her grandmother Teresa, leave audiences spellbound! Avid proponents of dance education, the group teaches folklorico dance for all ages at their own Academy for Performing Arts (https://thee-academy.com/).  Ballet Folklorico de Los Angeles is proudly represented by Marian Liebowitz Artist Management.
