Adriana Villalva, at the age of 21, is the founding Vice-President of Alma y Corazón Tejano Ballet Folklórico. Adriana started developing her passion for ballet folklórico at the age of 3 years old when, after attending a local ballet folklórico performance, she asked her parents to enroll her in her first ballet folklórico class.
Throughout the years, Adriana has received some of the highest quality of training in ballet folklórico from maestros and instructors locally and in Mexico. This training has allowed Adriana to provide thousands of community service hours by performing and teaching at hundreds of public events. Adriana was a member and choreographer of the debut ballet folklórico performance at the world-renowned Margot and Bill Winspear Opera House in Dallas, Texas. Adriana has competed in numerous folklórico competitions and has won numerous solo, duet, and group awards.
