The Ballet Folklórico Los Angelitos is a dance company founded by Nancy Nystrom as part of her efforts to provide a unique opportunity to children of Casa Hogar Los Angelitos to develop life-changing values, cultural and social skills, self discipline, confidence and help to overcome the traumas of their past. It has become an incentive for scholastic excellence and a vehicle for learning through world travel.
