"Fireworks of rhythm and color", "A whirlwind of color, beauty, music. A party cheerful and nimble feet. No other ballet has provided us with such charm", these are some of the critics comments from the international press dedicated to the Ballet Folklorico de Mexico of Amalia Hernández. An extraordinary spectacle that will transport you to the depths of the jungle with pre-Hispanic dances, the quasi Caribbean flavor of Veracruz, the most authentic Mexico of the mariachi. An absolute must if you are in Mexico City.

Thanks to the beauty of this show, since 1959 the Mexican Folkloric Ballet has hosted one of the most beautiful and iconic places in Mexico City, the Palace of Fine Arts, where every wednesday and sunday in which the Ballet has performed uninterruptedly. 

Share the excitement of the public in the magnificent hall before the show. The best scenario for a magical evening. Finally comes the most awaited moment. The 22 tons of the Tiffany glass curtain begins to rise. The expectation is high, the lights go out and the show begins. Nearly two hours later, during the finale, you wonder what happened, you lost track of time with the extraordinary choreography, the colorful costumes, the live music, the singers ... There are moments that will give you goosebumps. Simply unforgettable!
