Hispanic Heritage Month - Day #3

Blanca is part of the team at Ballet Folklorico Mexico Lindo Idaho! located in Nampa, Idaho.

Here is her interview:

Cuéntame acerca de ti y de tus raíces:

Yo nací en Jalisco, llegue hace 20 años, estoy casada y tengo una niña y un niño.
Mi hija toca en un un mariachi. Tengo 9 años bailando danza folclórica, y ya es parte de mí!

¿Cuál es tu comida favorita (Latina/Hispana)? :

Tostadas de ceviche y tacos dorados.

¿Cuál es tu frase favorita?

No preocuparse que no pasa nada.

Dime acerca de tu negocio u oficio:

Aparte de la danza, también hago limpieza de casas, tengo 15 años con los mismos clientes.

¿Qué significa Herencia Hispana para ti?

Estar orgullosos de nuestras raíces, costumbres y tradiciones.
Es un orgullo para mí ser Mexicana! Y de poder compartir un poco de nuestras tradiciones y poder transmitir Alegrías con los bailes, los trajes coloridos y tanta diversidad que tiene cada estado.

Virgencita Morena, Madre de Dios. Gracias for the many blessings you’ve given to me and to so many. Thank you for your constant protection and love. Thank you for hearing the prayers of the faithful and for being an ever present light in my life. When uncertainty sets in, I know I can always turn to you to hear me and guide me. I pray to always love my children as much as you loved your Son, and may I be as trusting in my own faith as you were when you were chosen by God. 🌹I pray that this next year be one of health, strength and love for us all.

What a wonderful Folklorico weekend it was for BFML!! So very very proud that some of my dancers were able to travel to Salt Lake City, Utah to learn from Maestra Amalia Viviana Basanta Hernández of THEE Ballet Folklorico DE México 🤯🇲🇽👏🏽 My longtime heroine (after my Frida) has always been Amalia Viviana’s mother, the late Amalia Hernández. As in, the one who created the Ballet Folklorico de México. 🤯 As a teacher, my Folklorico world came full circle with the opportunity for my own dancers from idaho to learn from the daughter of the very woman who changed my life and my passion for Folklorico in that teatro in México so many years ago. My heart is just so grateful that my dancers traveled and learned in the name of BFML, in the name of the state of Idaho, in the name of continuing the traditions. 🇲🇽😭🙌🏽
BFML also had the opportunity to share in the Quinceañera celebration for Yvette C.! 💐So much fun! Such beautiful customs we have in our culture: the dancing, the milestone celebrations, the sharing and passing down of traditions…Feeling so grateful and so very thankful for it all. 🦋🙏🏽

So long, old pal. Thanks for always being a safe space for me and my Dance Fam. Thanks for watching over my kids as they did ate dinner, watched movies, played with their toys, or did homework while I taught. Thanks for letting me sit and think in peace on the days when I just needed to collect my thoughts. Thanks for being a place where I was comfortable being completely and totally in my element. Thanks for being my refuge and my therapist office disguised as dance class. Thank you for being my most favorite classroom ever. Thank you for teaching me that Yes I CAN be my own business owner. Thank you for the guests who visited and touched my heart. Thank you for the lessons learned, both personal and professional. Thank you for demanding more of me so that I’d challenge myself and realize that I’ve always had it within me to do so. I’ll be courageous going forward...because my time here is done but also because God’s not done with me yet. ❤️

Thank you, @idahonews6 and reporter Ricardo Coronado for the opportunity to share my story about closing my beloved Folklorico studio next week. It was a bittersweet experience talking about it all, but I appreciate being able to share one more time about who BFML is and how much our community means to us. I pray the perfect space and opportunity present themselves for us to continue sharing our heritage and culture. This isn’t the end: it’s a new beginning...🦋

It is with a very heavy heart that I share that Studio Alma Folklórica, home of Ballet Folklorico Mexico Lindo for the last 10 years in downtown Nampa, will be closing its doors on April 30th, 2021. I’m not quitting or retiring...Unfortunately my studio rent is increasing, and even though life is barely beginning to show signs of pre-COVID life, I simply cannot afford an increase in rent right now. I’m thankful that the majority of my students have come back to classes, (YAY!) and performances are coming our way (And we will ABSOLUTELY honor those commitments!). But the arts took such an enormous hit when this pandemic took so much from so many. I honestly don’t know where BFML is going. It’s very scary, and I don’t have the answers to the many questions circulating. My heart hurts for my dancers who deserve a safe space to meet. We do more than just practice in our spaces; they’re where meetings and milestones are held and celebrated. So many years worth of memories and secrets and laughter and so much love within these 4 tiny walls... literally my blood sweat and tears in this space. I hate it. 😔 But as I shared with my Dance Fam- a building doesn’t make BFML... WE. DO. ❤️ COVID-19 came and tried to take everything familiar from us including performances and spaces. But it won’t- and it can’t. I promise that I will find Us a safe space again where we’ll continue to create and learn, and share and grow. I don’t know where that space is. Yet. But as sure as the sol rises, so too will We. 🙌🏽We’ve struggled before and came out on top- ABSOLUTELY We will do it again. I got you, Dance Fam. Neta. In the words of Kendrick Lamar- If God’s got us, then we gon’ be aight. Stay tuned, Amigos.
❤️🇲🇽✊🏽✨💪🏽🙏🏽🔥🕊
