About Nahualli

Nahualli (Nah-Wall-e) Folklore Society is a registered non-profit organization established in Vancouver, B.C. Canada since 2010. Its purpose is to represent and share Mexican Culture through dance. 

The name Nahualli (Nah-Wall-e) originates from an indigenous language of Mexico called Nahuatl (Nah-Wah-til). It signifies an animal spirit or transforming power that protects and guides each person from the moment of birth.

Nahualli (Nah-Wall-e) Ballet Folklorico specializes in the performance of Traditional Mexican Dance, including "zapateado" techniques and skirt twirling combined with Mexico's most popular rhythms of El Son, El Huapango, La Música Ranchera, Banda, Indigenous music and many others.
