Mrs. Anita N. Martinez is the genius and guiding light behind ANMBF. While Mrs. Martinez was elected to serve a city-wide-at-large district, her passion for cultural awareness and her fight for social, health and infrastructure equalities led to an outstanding record of improvements in depressed communities of West Dallas and “Little Mexico”

Our History
Learn More

In 1975, a recreation center was built in Dallas’ economically depressed west side. Then City Councilwoman, Anita N. Martinez was instrumental in the effort. This center was the birthplace of the Anita N. Martinez Ballet Folklorico (ANMBF), the initial purpose of which was to instill in young people a sense of cultural pride and self-worth through the study of the traditional dance forms of Mexico.
