The Quad Cities Ballet Folklorico (QCBF) is a non-profit organization that teaches the Mexican culture through the art form of dance. Founded in 1984 by Arnulfo Camarillo with the help of his wife, Beatriz Camarillo it all came together after studying folklore dance at the Universidad de Guadalara in Jalisco, Mexico. There Arnulfo returned to the United States with aspirations to keep this Hispanic culture and its rich traditions alive. He achieved exactly that and accomplished so much more.
Throughout the years, the QCBF has welcomed students from a variety of backgrounds to join in their mission to express the Hispanic culture through dance and music. Soon these young kids were performing traditional dances from the states such as Nayarit, Veracruz, Nuevo Leon, and the popular Jalisco.
