“Turn off the electricity; the dancers of Bale Folclorico da Bahia power the show.”
-- The Orange County Register
Balé Folclórico da Bahia, the only professional folk dance company in Brazil, was formed in 1988 by Walson Botelho and Ninho Reis and has achieved considerable success in its relatively short history. Under the artistic direction of José Carlos Arandiba, the company’s many national and international tours have earned it a prestigious reputation throughout the country and abroad that is reflected in both public and critical acclaim.
The 38-member troupe of dancers, musicians and singers performs a spectacular repertory based on “Bahian” folkloric dances of African origin including slave dances, capoeira (a form of martial arts), samba, and those celebrating Carnival. The company presents the region’s most important cultural manifestations under a contemporary theatrical vision that reflects its popular origins.
