Celebrating the rich tradition and folklore of Mexico, Ballet Folklórico de México de Amalia Hernàndez combines artists’ talents with the traditional music, elaborate dance and decorative costumes of Mexican culture.

Ballet Folklórico de México was founded in 1952 by choreographer Amalia Hernández. The company started out with only eight members and performed Amalia’s modern dance ballets in different venues around Mexico City. Soon after, the company was offered a weekly television program where Amalia had to create, choreograph and dance new ballets with her company every week. This allowed Amalia the opportunity to show the public her knowledge of the music and folkloric dances of her country.
