Watch  the Bale Folclorico da Bahia. 

So here we are folks, locked into the cold, icy doldrums of mid-winter once again. However, fear not, the Bale Folclorico da Bahia (BFB) has come to the rescue with a show that is designed to heat up even the bleakest January night! 24 dancers, instrumentalists,and vocalists strong, this Brazilian dance troupe literally lights up the entire performance venue wherever they go, never-failing to bring the audience out of their seats, dancing to the highly energetic beats of  Afro-Brazilian folk and popular music at its finest. Founded in Salvador, Bahai in 1988 by Walson Botel and Ninho Reis, they are Brazil’s sole professional dance company and already in their very first year of performance  were named “Best Performer of the Year” by the country’s  Ministry of Culture. Since then they have been considered Brazil’s top dance troupe, becoming wildly popular not only in their homeland, but on a world-wide scale abroad, as well. Their performance repertoire consists of Afro-Brazilian folkloric dance scenarios based on traditional genres including slave dances, capoeira, samba, and those presented at the spectacularly colorful celebration of Brazilian Carnival. Artistic director Jose Carlos Arandiba, brings these traditional dance forms to life on stage with contemporary, innovative choreography designed to appeal to general audiences the world over. And who wouldn’t be absolutely dazzled by a spectacle of color, action-packed choreography accented with  acrobatic and martial arts movements, intensely rhythmic music, and high drama. This show is non-stop high energy from beginning to end.

 In 2008, Bale Folclorico da Bahia commemorated its 20th anniversary with a new show comprised of both old favorites and brand new dance numbers. Learn more about this highly successful dance company’s accomplishments by visiting their website history and award pages. And if you do have the good fortune of attending their upcoming Boston performance, be prepared to be razzled and dazzled, while experiencing a truly euphoric emotional high.
