About this Artist
Ballet Folklorico Ollin is a non-profit cultural organization founded in 1972. It's primary goal is to preserve and interpret the diverse cultural beauty of México re-created here in California. Through music, dance, and folk traditions, Ballet Folklorico Ollin continues their commitment to professionalism and community involvement. Ollin performs continuously throughout the calendar seasons.
The company has shared the stage with 2 Time Grammy Award Winning Mariachi Divas de Cindy Shea for the historic celebrations of “Los Tres Reyes Magos” at Disneyland Amusement Park. The company continues to perform with legends that have included: Mariachi Vargas de Tecalitlan, Mariachi Monumental de Juan Jose Almaguer, and of course Mariachi Tesoro de San Fernando. It has been a privilege to be featured with Linda Ronstadt, the late Lola Beltran lovingly hailed ‘ la reina de la musica ranchera ‘ (the queen of ranchera music), Ana Gabriel, Jose Feliciano, Daniela Romo, and Vicki Carr and recently Las Colibri, Mariachi Reyna de Los Angeles and Mariachi Angeles de Pepe Martinez to name a few.
Through the cooperation of the Orange County Philharmonic Society, the Ballet was honored to perform “Fiesta Navidad” with Grammy Award Winning Mariachi Los Camperos de Nati Cano. For over 10 years of programming, Ollin captured the holiday spirit at the Orange County Center for the Performing Arts.
