about the festival

Bailando International 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, Bailando has provided the community with culturally diverse works of dance performed by companies from areas throughout North and Central America!
Chartered as a non-profit organization in 1976, Corpus Christi Concet Ballet provides a diverse season of classical ballet and innovative dance and entertainment to the Coastal Bend.  The regional company plays an integral role in growth of the arts in the community through its seasonal productions and education in South Texas through its extensive outreach programs.  Our Performing Arts Series provides live professional performances of classical and modern ballet pieces to over 30,000 students each year.

additional outreach

who is cc concert ballet?

Bailando has started a tradition of not only engaging dance students throughout the event weekend, but also by bringing the educational outreach into local area schools. Our goal is to inspire young people to be active and to learn about arts education with the help of some of our professional guest artists. These professional teachers move with the students and guide them through creative movement.
Last year we were fortunate to have Danza Universitaria here all the way from Costa Rica to go into several local schools, teaching a variety of dance styles to elementary, middle, and high school ages. This year's group of teachers will be announced later this summer!
