The Dance Academy of Mexico (DAOM) specializes in the instruction of traditional Mexican folkloric dances from the various states of Mexico as well as pre-Hispanic dances. We opened our doors on September 1, 2010, in Milwaukee, WI USA.
In every class, we teach the steps, choreographies, movements and techniques. We rehearse with the whole class – beginners and advanced students. This system encourages teamwork and leadership, which are essential to perfect group choreographies and to succeed in life. Perseverance and commitment are also important. You must have patience and not give up. Everyone dancing with us today was a beginner when they joined us.
We offer many opportunities to travel within the US and abroad through our membership with the CIOFF. The International Council of Organizations of Folklore Festivals and Folk Art(CIOFF®, in French, Conseil international des organisations de festivals de folklore et d'arts traditionnels), is an International nongovernmental organization (NGO) in formal consultative relation with and accredited by UNESCO.
Created in 1970, the duty of CIOFF® is safeguarding, promotion and diffusion of traditional culture and folklore.
In more than 90 countries, CIOFF® National Sections are umbrella organizations for national and regional associations of traditional culture, folklore and folk arts festivals, as well as intangible heritage specialists.
We traveled to Chiba, Japan in 2016, and to Drummondville, Canada in 2017.
