"DIRECTOR OF THE YEAR" AWARD

La Competencia Folklorica de Tejas honors the many amazing dancers it sees through the annual ballet folklorico dance competition and awards ceremony.
 
The CFT committee acknowledges that it is also important to recognize a director each year that has gone the extra mile in areas such as teaching, investigating/researching, mentoring, instilling cultural pride, bringing students closer to dance, overall managing of their company, etc.
 
With this, the “Director of the Year ” award was introduced in the 2014 Competencia Folklorica de Tejas in Corpus Christi, Texas.
