 The 38-member troupe of dancers, musicians, and singers performs a repertory based on a “Bahian” folkloric dances of African origin and includes capoeira (a form of martial arts), samba, and those that celebrate Carnival. The company presents the Brazilian region of Bahia’s most important cultural manifestations under a contemporary theatrical vision that reflects its popular origins.

The only professional folk dance company in Brazil, Balé Folclórico da Bahía was formed in 1988. Under the artistic direction of José Carlos Arandiba, the company’s many national and international tours have earned it a prestigious reputation throughout its native Brazil and around the world.
