During the day, the festival had a series of Mexican folk dancers representing a number of regional styles.
Ballet Folklorico Puro Mexico (BFPM) is a Toronto-based, non-profit organization that was founded in 2003 thanks to the enthusiasm of its members, whose only goal is to spread and promote Mexican culture through folkloric dance.
The organization works to preserve the rich heritage of traditional regional Mexican dances through researching, recording and teaching, looking to reveal Mexico’s cultural diversity.
Although relatively young, BFPM currently hold dancers who proudly express the art of Mexican folklore. BFPM is guided and taught by Jorge Zarate and Jezreel Vasquez, who have extensive training in the art of Mexican folklore.
