The world-renowned folkloric ballet ensemble, Ballet Folklórico de México, is known for their artistry, beautiful costumes, and ability to captivate audiences.  For decades, the company has traveled the world presenting dances reflecting the cultural traditions of Mexico, featuring authentic costumes, music and dance.  Ballet Folklórico de México returns to the United States for an extended multi-city tour featuring renewed performances of the company’s classic choreography. Founded in 1952 by dancer and choreographer Amalia Hernández, Ballet Folklórico brings together the music, dance and costume of Mexican folklore from pre-Colombian civilizations through the modern era. With its permanent home at the Palacio de Bellas Artes, one of Mexico City’s most historic venues, the company has developed choreography for 40 ballets, composed of 76 folk dancers who have performed extensively across Mexico and abroad.
