To promote and celebrate the Hispanic culture in Branch County, El Ballet Folklorico Estudiantil returns to Tibbits for a performance of traditional Mariachi music and Folklorico dance on Cinco de Mayo, Sunday, May 5 at 1 pm.
This student group combines traditional mariachi music and dance to create performances that have been seen all over the Midwest as well as nationally and internationally. El Ballet Folklorico Estudiantil (EBFE), is a non-profit organization whose mission is to increase awareness and preservation of the Hispanic cultural heritage and to enhance self-determination and confidence among residents in the Hispanic communities. The group has been the leader in providing Hispanic cultural programs to Michigan residents for over 20 years. They have branches servicing Hispanic communities in Flint, Pontiac and Lansing.
The performance is free thanks to sponsorship support of Jalisco Grocery and El Cerrito Mexican Restaurant, as well as the generous support of Branch County Community Foundation. A cash bar featuring margaritas and Corona will be available at the Ghostlight Bar in the theatre’s elevator lobby. Please visit Tibbits.org for a complete listing of shows and events.
