🇲🇽❤️💯😭🎉Mexico en el Corazón 🇲🇽❤️💯😭🎉 Nampa, ID May 19, 2024
My Ballet Folklorico México Lindo had the honor of opening for the cast and crew of Mexico en el Corazón last night in Nampa, Idaho. And it was truly a magical night! Not only did we get to open for these incredible dancers and musicians, but we were able to take photos with them and share our experiences after the performance. As a teacher, it was pure joy to witness my dancers seeing Themselves professionally on stage. And as if the night wasn’t amazing enough, I received the most beautiful compliments from the Mexican Consulate of Boise, Ricardo Gerardo Higuera, and his lovely wife. 😭 Amazing. ❤️ So on days when I wake up sore from teaching seven dance classes a week, and I need to put gas in the car again from running errands for dance, and I’m buying tights and red lipstick for the millionth time, I will remember moments like these that make it all so very worth it. Corazón llena, corazón contento ❤️🇲🇽
Siempre orgullosa de ser Mexicana. I even have the birthday to prove it. 😉🇲🇽🙌🏽❤️🎉💯 Grateful for this incredible opportunity.

Ballet Folklorico México Lindo/Cinco de Mayo 2024
Thank you so much to everyone who came out to support us and show their love and pride for our beautiful Mexican culture. It was a fantastic Cinco de Mayo season! 🇲🇽🎉 Thank you to the event organizers who allowed us to share our time and talents. We had a blast! 💥 Thank you to the BFML parents, families and friends who do the behind-the-scenes work like driving and prepping and purchasing and photographing and making and sharing. 🤣 🚘🧵📸 🧷 We can’t do this without you! ❤️ And an enormous Thank you- especially going out to each and every one of my beautiful BFML dancers- who put in so many hours of practice to make sure that they were ready and feeling confident on stage. You amaze me every time. ❤️ I’m so proud of you all, Dance Fam! You make this work so worth it, and I can’t imagine doing anything else. For as long as God allows me to be healthy and able bodied, I pray that we have many more continued community connections through dance. 🥰 ❤️

So this happened this morning 🤩 had the opportunity to share our time and talents with fellow powerful women artists in support of “Sabiduría Conectada”, Connected Wisdom, a production by the students of Idaho Fine Arts Academy sharing the representation and artistic excellence of Latin American women in the arts. Showcase will be on Saturday, April 27 at 7 PM at the Centennial High School auditorium in Boise.
Had a great morning performing at KTVB News Channel 7 on the Idaho Today Show with host Melissa Paul, and giving a sneak peek of Saturday’s program!
@ Melissa Paul- thank you for not letting me go on camera with red lipstick smeared all over my mouth 😂 Thank you for the opportunity, Amigas, here’s to strong women! 💕💪🏽

It is with a very heavy heart that I share that the Folklorico world has lost a great Maestro, Maestro Miguel Ponce, of Houston, Texas. Houston and the folklorico community will never be the same without him.

BFML had the privilege of hosting Maestro Ponce several times out here in Idaho. Every time he visited, he shared his passion for dance, along with his strong ability to connect with both dancers and parents in a way that made us all feel comfortable and unafraid to learn new regions and dances. We learned regions that we still incorporate in our repertoire to this day. He was such a wonderful teacher, and will be missed greatly by so many.

I initially met Miguel at Danzantes Unidos Festival, where I flunked his Machetes class not once, but twice. Lucky for me he was a patient teacher. 🥲 Thanks to him, my dancers learned the regions of Nuevo León, Tamaulipas, Sinaloa and Nayarit. We will carry on those traditions you shared with us, Maestro, and we will perform them proudly each and every time.

To his family, and students, there are no words. We send our love and condolences to you all. I cannot imagine the pain you are feeling. He was a great man. Know that you are all definitely being held in prayer during this difficult time. Desde Boise, Idaho, les mandamos un fuerte abrazo.

Descanse en paz, Maestro Ponce. May you be free of pain and suffering. Gracias for taking the time to share your talents with me and my dancers in Idaho. You made a lasting impact and difference on us. I pray that you sleep in the eternal peace of Christ. And may you be dancing one hell of a Huapango in heaven. 🙏🏽💔🕊️

Thank you, NACADA participants and Boise State University Academic Advisors for allowing BFML to share our time and talents with you all! We appreciate you, and are grateful for the opportunity and support!


Mami & Me classes are cancelled for the foreseeable future due to low attendance. 😔Perhaps I’ll bring them back at a later date, but for now, I need to reset and rethink.

Thank you to all of my little amiguitos and their families for joining me these past few sessions and years. I’ve enjoyed meeting you all and sharing the cultura too!

Stay tuned while I work on improving how to share our culture with the youngest little community members! 🙏🏽❤️

Today’s BFML Educational Outreach was brought to you by the excellent students at Idaho Fine Arts Academy! What a great morning of sharing and teaching Folklorico dances including the history, cultural significance and world influences. I absolutely love hosting educational outreach because it combines my two passions of education and Folklorico dancing. It’s such an honor to be living and doing what I love for a living. 🙏🏽 Thank you to Rachel Swenson, and everyone at Idaho Fine Arts Academy for being so welcoming and helpful. I can’t wait to dance with you all again soon! ✨

Late post, but I just have to share how proud I am of my dancer on her recent award and recognition from the Idaho Association for Bilingual Education! It was so fun sharing our time and talents with everyone that attended the conference, and even more exciting to see one of my own BFML dancers begin her journey as a soon-to-be-teacher in Idaho! So very proud of you, Audie! 🎉 The future is so bright ahead for you! 🌟

BFML sharing our time and talents for Idaho Human Rights/Martin Luther King Jr. Day at the Idaho State Capitol building. January 15, 2024. I intentionally wanted to showcase the diversity within México by having multiple regions represented. No winter cold, nor heaping piles of snow outside could keep us from dancing on such a special occasion! Thank you for the opportunity to be part of such a special day, and kick off the new year with song, dance, and hope!
PS, it was literally 7° outside by the time I got back to my car…Totally worth it! 🙏🏽🥶❄️☮️


Ballet Folklorico México Lindo is honored to be performing on Monday, January 15, 2024, at 12:00 noon inside the rotunda of the Idaho State Capitol building in downtown Boise, in honor of Idaho Human Rights Day/Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day. We are proud to be sharing our time and talents. Join us. ☮️

On December 26, 2022, some very dedicated BFML parents, dancers and friends met me at my storage unit in Nampa and packed up everything I needed to once again open my dance studio- but this time it would be in Boise. We were knee-deep in post-Christmas snow and slush, and the building was nowhere near completed... There were paint buckets & drop cloths everywhere, blinds that needed to be hung, the walls were bare, the electrical needed to be fixed, it was freezing both inside and out, the carpet was filthy, and now, two years’ worth of dusty dance equipment from my storage unit lay in the middle of this giant wooden floor. Just thinking about it all over again freaks me out.

Everyone there that day was so excited and so happy for me, and they kept asking me how I was feeling. Truth be told, I was overwhelmed. My fight or flight feeling kicked in and I remember wanting to run away and be at home with my dog. I remember wanting to get the hell out of there because I felt like I had made a horrible, expensive mistake.
Over the course of the next two weeks, I would put in 12-14 hour days, every single day, to make sure that my studio was ready to open its doors on January 9th, 2023, to welcome back my dancers and invite in new ones.
I’ve never worked so hard in my life. I remember being so tired I was nauseated, and yet I had the help of so many. There was no financial savings, no business loan or cash flow, no Plan B, no business partner, no significant other… nothing. I. WAS. IT.
I’m so happy and so proud to say that for the last 12 months, my studio has made its rent every single month. Gratitude overwhelms me. ✨

And while I’m not at the point where I can pay myself (yet), I know someday I will be.

It’s been a year of so much hard work, but so many happy memories made in that space in just 12 short months.
And as I begin year #2 at 4214 West Emerald St. in Boise, I anticipate the new year with joy and gratitude.
✨Cheers to everyone who has supported BFML for the last 20 years. Here’s to new many more adventures together! 🥂

Annual BFML Cookie Exchange and Holiday Luncheon 2023 was a sweet success! 🍭So incredibly grateful for all of my dance family. Thank you for such a fun afternoon! 🍪❤️
And 2023, we’re not done with you yet!


Went to the thrift store today, looking for a new desk. I ended up finding something much more suited for me. Talk about divine timing. The store clerk told me that these little ones just arrived last night. They were made in December 1948. ❤️ Now 75 years later, they’ll have a permanent home in my collection of vintage Mexican dolls at my studio in Boise. ❤️🇲🇽

What a magical afternoon yesterday was for ! We had the honor and privilege of not only meeting, but performing for Author at the ! She signed our books and even joined in the dances with us…What a great sport! Having her sign our books and take time out of her schedule to take pictures with my dancers was fantastic! Knowing that I have bilingual books in my collection that are signed by the author herself to share with my students is amazing. And having my dancers see themselves represented in books and in person as a career path is priceless. 🙏🏽Thank you so much to and our fellow community members who showed up to lend their support and appreciation. It was a great day, and we are so grateful!
Thanks to my dancing, I’ve now met and performed for 3 Latina writers:
Not bad for the kid who read more than she spoke. 😉
