Local Community Information

The Ecuadorian Community in Albany has been growing within the last couple of years; as a community we believe it is important for our kids to be exposed to our culture and learn to appreciate it.  As an attempt to rescue our heritage and culture we formed an organization called “Mi Bello Ecuador” (My Beautiful Ecuador). We enjoy recreating different dances from different regions of Ecuador. We   had the privilege to perform our folkloric dances at different schools in the Capital Region and cultural events.  The Ecuadorian community is proud to promote our heritage, culture and faith with the community.
