Bailando Dance Festival is part of Corpus Christi Concert Ballet's Dance Initiative and is a full weekend event featuring evening dance concerts and master classes in a variety of dance styles.  Initiated in September 2000, the Bailando Dance Festival provides the community with culturally diverse works of dance performed by companies from across the state of Texas.

Bailando also serves as an educational outreach to the community, introducing a variety of dance forms to many people throughout the Coastal Bend, offering master classes to all dancers in the community and offering opportunities for aspiring choreographers to show their works in an artistically growing environment.

Come and enjoy a weekend of dance with friends and family.  Relax and unwind as you experience the art of dance from within your community!
