In 2022, Ballet Folklórico de México de Amalia Hernandez celebrates its 70th Anniversary. To commemorate the occasion, the company will return to the United States for an extended multi-city tour featuring renewed performances of the company’s classic choreography. 

The company’s US tour in Fall 2018 was a coast-to-coast success. The eight-week tour packed houses across the country and received an enthusiastic response from audience members new and old. Performances and educational activities drew strong support from Mexican-American communities in particular.

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.
