Ms. Martin is the Founder, Artistic Director, Choreographer, Instructor and Dancer of Ballet Folklorico Sol de San Antonio located near the downtown San Antonio area. With the help and support of her parents, Ms. Martin formed her company in early 2019 of her senior year of high school at the young age of 17. Ms. Martin graduated from South San Antonio High School in 2019 and continued her studies as a dance major at San Antonio College. Her company came together as a recreational group of eight friends/dancers wanting to participate in a local folklorico competition in Austin, Texas. She took the role of director not realizing that her passion was about to take her down an amazing path and into a new chapter of her dancing career. By her hard work and dedication, the eight-dancer group is now a full-blown group of 30 plus dancers where she does all the dance selections, choreographies and directing for competitions and other performances. They have performed at Luminaria Contemporary Arts Festival, Dia de Los Muertos Festival, Ford Mariachi Festival River Parade and at the Historic Market Square amongst other events and venues. On September 11, 2021, Ms. Martin put together her first ever production held at the Scottish Rite Theatre where she directed and choreographed all the pieces presented in her show. Most all to live mariachi music. Ms. Martin teaches technique to beginner, intermediate, advanced and professional levels of folklorico as well as ballet technique.
