010 ¡Teatro! Folkloric Dance Teacher, Chef, Farmer, Artist BETO RINCÓN from Seguin, TX
Beto Rincón is a farmer, artist, teacher, and dancer working at Teatro in Seguin, TX. While teaching in Pittsburgh, PA, he met a student who would eventually be a volunteer farmer at Habitable Spaces farm and artist residency. Beto’s involvement with Teatro dates back to when he started dancing folkloric dance at the age of four. His mother also played Mariachi guitar while he was in the womb, the reason he was born with the rhythm that made him a drummer.
Since then, Beto has been a member of some of Teatro’s award-winning groups, a dance intern, instructor, and now works as Ballet Folklorico (folkloric dance) Artistic Director with Teatro, a nonprofit whose mission is to provide a better understanding of the Mexican-American people through the promotion and practice of arts.
He has also participated in Teatro’s Agroecology and Artist in Education programs where he has taught Mexican-American culture through performing Ballet Folklorico and lectures.
Beto also shares his culinary and food passion, a skill he mastered since he was 15, passed down to him from his grandmother who taught boys how to cook because she didn’t have any girls.
