2017-2018 SEASON
Folklorico Latino De Woodland (FLDW) was established to help local youth develop a sense of pride in their roots and to appreciate their heritage thought the arts, especially Mexican music and dance (Folklorico). One of the primary goals for FLDW is for members of our youth group, through performances and participation in local community activities, to build and promote self-esteem, confidence, and cultural awareness for those in the greater Yolo county region.

We are a community.


30 years of service

Folklorico Latino de Woodland was founded in 1986 by three members of the Woodland community (James Harvey-Keith, Helena Ochoa, and Marina Ramirez) that saw a need to help local youth develop a sense of pride in their roots and to appreciate their heritage.

We perform dance styles originating from across many states in Mexico including Tamaulipas, Tabasco, Durango, Veracruz, Nuevo Leon, Baja California, and Aguascalientes.

One of our proudest achievements is our commitment to helping our young dancers seek higher education. FLDW has awarded more than thirty-seven member scholarships. We have members that have successfully attended universities at UC Davis, UC Berkeley, and Sacramento State, to name a few.

We are devoted to promoting awareness of Mexican culture and serving our community.


Folklorico Latino de Woodland is available to for both public and private events offering performances by our troupe ranging in length from 10 minutes to 30 minutes and longer. Our performances in one of our ways in which we raise money to fund our program and provide the beautiful wardrobe that you will see our members in.
