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.

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.
