Founded in 1952 by dancer and choreographer Amalia Hernández, Ballet Folklórico de México fuses music, dance, and costumes of Mexican folklore from pre-Colombian civilizations through the modern era. Permanently housed at the Palacio de Bellas Artes in Mexico City, the company has developed choreography for 40 ballets, composed of 76 folk dancers who have performed extensively across Mexico and abroad. For six decades the company has presented dances that capture audiences with their spirited music and breathtaking costumes, while paying tribute to traditional Mexican culture.
