Sharing the Culture of Panama with the World!
BALLET FOLKLORICO VIVA PANAMA
In April 1991, after realizing that their Culture and Folklore were not represented among the multicultural festivals in the Southern California area, a group of Panamanians created Ballet Folklórico Viva Panama, since then they have toured by more than 60 cities in California, three states and four countries (Mexico, Puerto Rico, Canada, China and soon Italy ).
The property of this corporation is irrevocably dedicated to educational purposes; because of this, many VPO events and projects are planned to fulfill this purpose. VPO through its Ballet Folklorico has taken its cultural heritage to the schools, planting the seed of the dances of Panama in the schools of Southern California.
