Balet Folclorico Raices Mexicanas de Detroit is a not for profit dance group serving Southeastern Michigan since 1981. This group provides Mexican dance instruction and cultural education to children ages 6-adult.

Since our inception, Raices Mexicanas has seen hundreds of young people grow in our Mexican culture through folk dance. Our group provides a safe place for children to learn not only dance, but also discipline, self-confidence, excellence and teamwork. These characteristics are evidenced in their personal lives as well -- nearly every dancer that has participated in Raices Mexicanas has graduated high school, with many going on to finish college.

As part of the original mission, Raices Mexicanas shares the hard work of these young people throughout Southeastern Michigan. Our performers are the young people from Southwest Detroit and the surrounding suburbs. Our original choreography and authentic costumes continue to delight audiences from schools, senior citizen organizations, festivals, etc...throughout the year. Our current state repetoire includes the states of : Chiapas, Hidalgo, Veracruz, Tamaulipas, Sonora, Jalisco and Aguascalientes.
