Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - Xiutla Folkloric Ballet founder Professor Enrique Barrios Limón recently confirmed that his fabulous troop of dancers will perform their incredible Bolero de Rabel at the March 9, 2012 Spanish-themed Becas Ball at Raintree's Club Regina Puerto Vallarta.
For those who don’t know about Professor Barrios' now-famous group, Xiutla was the first name of Vallarta and means, in Náhuatl, "the place where the vegetation grows." Since 1994 Professor Barrios has been inspiring and teaching local girls and boys to learn the folkloric dances of Mexico. These dedicated young people, from only 30 in the first year, have grown to hundreds now. They have traveled Mexico, the United States, Canada and Europe with great acclamation. Becas Ball goers will be treated a performance fit for royalty.
A reminder that the entire event, from the 6:30 cocktail hour through the sit down dinner, will be on the shores of the Bahia de Banderas, so ladies, a shawl or jacket is in order. Also, true to our Spanish theme, we are hoping our attendees will come in either red, black or white. The event is in the Marina at the Raintree's Club Regina (next to the Westin). There is very little parking, so our suggestion is that taxi is the best way to arrive.
Becas members are working very hard to make this a very special occasion and look forward to seeing all of you. For tickets or more information call Polly Vicars at (322) 223-1371 or 044-322-182-0215 or email phvicars(at)gmail.com. ¡Ole!
