A fund raising Folklórico dance performance in the Del Norte High School Performing Arts Center (PAC) will honor former Del Norte HS principal Percy Larranaga. It begins at 7 pm on Friday, September 24, 2021. Tickets are $10 at the door and may be purchased online. Performers are Del Norte HS alumni who were part of the high school Folklórico troupe instructed by long time Spanish teacher Elaine Alarid.

Per APS Policy, all attendees must wear masks. Please note the Del Norte High School campus is is now fenced and access controlled. The only entrance to the PAC is the north entrance which is shared with the main gym. We suggest parking in the lot by the San Mateo entrance north of Montgomery.

In 2016, 2017 and 2018, Señora Elaine Alarid’s Ballet Folklórico Alumni have raised over $2,500 each year for the Del Norte High School AlumKnights® scholarships. The Del Norte High School Ballet Folklórico program started as part of the Spanish classes taught by Elaine Alarid, who graduated in West Mesa’s first class of 1968. Alarid started teaching at Del Norte in 1973 and retired from APS after 34 years of teaching Spanish.

Alarid’s Ballet Folklórico student dancers who were part of the Ballet Folklórico program at Del Norte High School in the 1980s-2010, now entertain across the city and state, with some special out-of-state performances. She sewed regional dance costumes and repaired other costumes donated to the ensemble.
