El Corazón de México Ballet Folklorico to perform at Walt Disney World in Florida

Elaina Hernández, the director and founder of El Corazón de México (A Pass-through of the Believe Center), in Toledo, OH, is pleased to announce that El Corazon de Mexico has been invited to perform at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida on January 2, 2019.  Elaina and her dance group members were ecstatic to receive the invitation to perform in the upcoming year.

El Corazón de México
performed at Disney in 2007, at that time, the dance group was the first Mexican folkloric dance group to perform at Disney’s Magic Kingdom. “The January performance will be a once in a life time opportunity for 30 of my dancers. We are so excited. I’m not only excited for the group but also to be able to represent the city of Toledo in such an exciting and positive way,” said Elaina Hernández. 

Elaina started El Corazón de México in 1996 with only 9 dancers, over the years the group has grown significantly and now has a total of 65 active members.  Elaina’s goal has always been to provide a safe space for children/young adults to learn about their culture through Mexican Folkloric dance.  Many of her dancers come from low to moderate income families. “I have always taught lessons at no charge and in return I just ask for commitment to practices and performances from the dancers,” stated Elaina. Along with teaching about dance, Elaina tries to incorporate activities that encourage and teach the importance of an education and living a positive lifestyle.

Currently, El Corazón de México Folklorico dance group is raising funds for this incredible trip.  At minimum, the group must raise $22,000. The bus alone is over $12,000.  To date the group has raised $13,000.  On Thursday, September 6th, the dance group will be hosting a comedy show fundraiser at the Toledo Funny Bone, located at 6140 Levis Commons Blvd, Perrysburg, OH. Comedian Ramon Rivas II from Cleveland, OH will headline the show and the comedy club will also feature Toledo’s own talented comedian Rikki.

The event will begin at 6pm with raffles, musical entertainment, and performances by the dance group. The comedy show will begin at 7:00pm. The groups goal is to fill every seat in the comedy club. Your support will greatly contribute to the success of this trip and to this once in a lifetime experience for these children. Per Elaina “It is such a pleasure and honor to be invited back for another performance to not only represent the Mexican culture, but, also to represent the city of Toledo.”

Ticket costs are $12. For more information, about the event, and to purchase tickets, please contact Elaina at (419) 283-1628 or Monica at 419-297-8275.
