Required for Yearly Performance:

Girls: Practice shoes can be used for performances unless the region of Mexico which we are performing requires the use of folklorico boots.

Boys: the outfits need to be custom ordered due to large variations in size (these take from 8-12 weeks to make). All students can custom order shoes and outfits.

Outfits and shoes can be purchased online, in-person, in Mexico with relatives/friends, or directly through the instructor. When purchased through instructor, there is a $5-10 discount per each pair of basic (black or white) shoes and free shipping for both shoe and outfit orders.
