BALÉ FOLCLÓRICO DA BAHIA is widely celebrated as one of the world’s finest folkloric dance companies. In a spectacular display of color, movement, and music, this 38-member Brazilian troupe of dancers, musicians, and singers performs a thrilling program of Bahian folkloric dances of African origin, including slave dances, capoeira, samba, and Carnival celebrations. As the only professional folkloric dance company in Brazil, BALÉ FOLCLÓRICO DA BAHIA has garnered extraordinary critical acclaim. The company has performed throughout Europe, making a terrific splash at the Biennale de la Danse in Lyon, France, and completing multiple tours from Sydney to Stockholm. This year, BALÉ FOLCLÓRICO DA BAHIA launches extensive tours in Africa and Asia and makes a long-anticipated return to the United States, celebrating 22 years of explosive music and dance!
