Creekview High School Folklorico
Our Varsity Dance Companies provide members the opportunity to learn and explore different movement aesthetics and to instill the qualities of leadership, scholarship, sportsmanship, citizenship, humility and self-discipline, while maintaining a high sense of responsibility and moral character when working within our dance community locally, regional, and nationally. The Creekview Chevals Drill Team promotes school and community spirit by supporting athletic and academic functions and other events as approved by the Director. They maintain a high level of precision dance forms such as jazz, pom, lyrical, hip-hop, kick, and prop routines. The Creekview Folklorico Company program provides and promotes an environment in which students will learn about Mexican and Latin American culture and its history through regional and traditional dances. As a company, our goal is to educate students and audience members about the history, art, and culture of Mexico and Latin American countries.
Welcome to our page and thank you for taking the time to read our bio! We are a 5A Theatre Program that was severely impacted by the pandemic. We were unable to produce any shows or additional fundraisers for the last year and a half. These are our sole source of additional funds to give our students the most out of their theatre experience. We use these funds to purchase rights and fundamentals needed for the shows we produce along with items that we need for our classes. We are a Title I school and only ever ask our casts to purchase their scripts - we provide everything else.
