Ballet Folklórico Costa de Oro History
In July 2009 the Ballet Folklórico Costa de Oro officially opened its doors to the community, offering both classes for children and adults. This would not have been possible without the efforts of its founders Benito Valles, Silvia Salcedo and Steven KoneffKlatt. The intent of the Ballet Folklórico Costa de Oro Dance School is to provide students of all ages access to Mexican culture and experienced instructors.
The Ballet Folklórico Costa de Oro has been performing in the San Francisco Bay Area since 2006 primarily for schools, weddings and private events. With the opening of the Ballet Folklórico Costa de Oro Dance School, the company has had the opportunity to grow exponentially. The excellent reputation of the company has allowed them to perform for professional sports organizations, local theaters and community festivals.
