EFC was created on November 2015 as an artistic program of *Colectivo ALA. It was Magaña‘s vision to create a unique organization where the LGBTQ+ Community would have the creative platform to express and validate our sexual and cultural identity. Since we opened our doors we have performed in various stages, festivals and for organizations who's values aligns with our work.
*Colectivo ALA is an LGBTQ social support group in San Jose, California.
Ensamble Folclórico Colibrí (EFC) Is a Mexican folklore dance group. Under the artistic directorship of Arturo Magaña, EFC has the mission to promote the pride of identifying as an LGBTQ+ Latinx through the art of Mexican Folklórico dance. Our mission also seeks to preserve our costumes and traditions through cultural and educational projects, lectures as well as staged performances.
EFC is an organization fiscally sponsored by the School of Arts and Culture at MHP. Our unique group is comprised of volunteers from various socioeconomic and educational backgrounds as well as sexual identities.
