What You Can Expect

Folkloric Ballet in Mexico City

Folkloric Ballet in Mexico City

The nightlife in Mexico City is second to none and provides an enormous variety of entertainment – but this is one show not to be missed!

For approximately sixty years the Ballet Folklorico of Mexico, founded by artistic director Amalia Hernandez, has performed more than 15,000 shows to 22 million people worldwide. The folk dance company preserves Mexico’s traditional arts by filming dances, recording music and photographing costumes from regions throughout Mexico, and presents these forms on stage.

Marvel at the dancers in their magnificent costumes – including multi-colored shawls, embroidered shirts, sombreros, fans and ribbons – as they entertain audiences of all ages. You’ll enjoy this vibrant spectacle full of movement and exciting rhythms that delight the senses.

As you listen to the music and watch each choreographed dance, learn about the folk traditions from various populations in Mexico – from the Mayan Empire of the Yucatan Peninsula to the cowboy cultures of Spanish-colonized Jalisco.

Ballet was great. The price of the tickets were grossly overcharged. You would be better off buying tickets direct and taking a cab. There are plenty of seats available since this show has been running for decades

The Ballet was wonderful, thankyou to Victor for finding us at the airport as well as taking us to the ballet and looking after us. We were sad the ballet had been had been moved to the Museum but it was still a fantastic night.

Just stunning. It blew us away. A great way to appreciate the dance and music of Mexico. The driver was dead on time to pick us up and take us back to hotel.
