About FDBA

Festival de Bellas Artes was created to nurture skill and appreciation for multicultural music and dance among the youth of Albuquerque.  The annual festival motivates and rewards students who have worked hard to develop their artistic ability throughout the school year.  Through performances and workshops, it is our hope that students leave the festival with a broader understanding of artistic styles and the inspiration to reach for even higher levels of artistry.

In addition to preserving and promoting the cultural art forms of Folkloric dance and Mariachi music, the event celebrates diversity of all kinds and strives to broaden the artistic experience of the participants through exposure to a wide variety of styles.  African dance and drumming, taiko, Middle Eastern dance, Flamenco and hip hop are just a few of the styles that students have enjoyed through the years.

Festival De Bellas Artes


Festival de Bellas Artes is hosted by the National Hispanic Cultural Center


Mission Statement: The Festival de Bellas Artes exists for students to express their cultures, grow pride in their ability to share through music and dance, and learn about other cultural art forms from other students and master teachers. Young people get to experience themselves as artists at varying stages of ability; from beginning elementary students exploring and experiencing this process for the first time, to advanced musicians and dancers who are mastering their craft. Students engage in the creative process from exploration, to inception, to performance, in a supportive and appreciative community of fellow students, teachers, and professional artists.
