Ballet Folklórico de México de Amalia Hernández

 

Mexico’s national dance company returns to Ann Arbor for the first time in over 15 years in a special Hill Auditorium performance that showcases the cultural richness of México.

Founded in 1952 by dancer and choreographer Amalia Hernández and now under the artistic general direction of her daughter, Ballet Folklórico de México quickly grew from its roots as a small company that produced dances based on Mexican folkloric traditions for a weekly television show. Hernández, who died in 2000, trained in ballet and modern dance, but she was drawn to the traditions of more than 60 regions in Mexico to make dances that celebrate the country’s indigenous legends and traditions dating back to the pre-Columbian era. The resulting explosion of colors and movement creates a rich tapestry of Mexico’s cultural history, “an incomparable point to enter the richness of a fabulous culture.” (Los Angeles Times)

Ballet Folklórico de México de Amalia Hernández was originally scheduled to perform in Hill Auditorium on Wednesday, February 24, 2021.
