BALLET FOLKLÓRICO DE MADRID España

The Ballet Folklórico de Madrid was presented some years ago on the theatrical stages of Madrid, but it has behind it the experience of more than 60 years provided by the "Grupo de Coros y Danzas de Madrid".

This group was created in 1949 and since then it has participated in the most prestigious national and international festivals. For a long time it was the head group of the Ministry of Culture and has collaborated with the Spanish Ministry of Foreign Affairs in many conventions and commemorations around the world. The Group of Choirs and Dances of Madrid is a member of the International Dance Council (UNESCO), as well as other entities dedicated to the defense of folklore such as the Madrid Folklore Federation whose presidency holds.

The main objectives of the group have been the recovery and dissemination of this rich cultural heritage that is Spanish folklore. They have attested to the many actions of this group within and outside our borders. We can highlight the presentation of the last years of the shows "España Baila", "Raíces", "Por el Sur", “Por los caminos de Santiago", "Son Sesenta" or "Litus", in the Theatre of Madrid, with great success of public on all occasions. Its international trajectory is evident with the numerous participation in all kinds of events around the world.
