Ballet Nepantla comes to the University of North Florida

Through a fusion of Mexican folklorico, contemporary dance, classical ballet and West African dance, Nepantla evokes stories about Mexican and Mexican-American people, about family, love, and about struggles and triumphs. Ballet Nepantla erases boundaries between dance forms and explores what it means to be from the borderlands - both as a geographical place and a state of mind. Ballet Nepantla tells stories to provoke the imagination of audiences and to help our society see the beauty of our community.


Two performances are being held in the Andrew Robinson Theater on the University of North Florida campus.


UNF students, faculty, staff and the greater Jacksonville community are invited to attend one or both of these performances. Admission is free, but an eTicket is required.
