I last visited Mexico City about 15 years ago and loved it. After so much time, two things were prominent in my memory: Teotihuacan and the Amalia Hernandez ballet troupe. I returned to Mexico City over Holy Week in 2015, this time with a husband and two kids (ages 9 and 11). I'll be honest - I had to force... More

This is not a stodgy dance performance. This show is loud and colorful showcasing music and dance from many different areas and cultures of Mexico. It was amazing! I recommend for adults and kids alike.

Then architecture, both inside and out, and the glorious Tiffany glass curtain are just appetizers for the feast to come when the performance begins. Having taken groups of university students to Mexico for many years, I have attended the Amelia Hernandez company's presentation numerous times and can attest to its exceptionaly in style, design, accuracy and precision of performance.

On our recent visit to Mexico City I was bullied (by my wife) into going to the Sunday morning show on our last day. I really don't like ballet so was dreading it but as she can be very vicious I couldn't get out of it. I have to say that it was really good (but don't tell her I... More

I have traveled extensively across Mexico. I'm a dancer myself and know the different regional dances. I can say that the show is very professional, dancer execute their moves with all the artistic, athletic and cultural rigueur. And as a world traveller I can also say this show has an international quality level.

Put this on your "Must Do" list for Mexico City. I understand the Ballet Folklorico performs in several venues, but we were fortunate to get tickets to see it in Las Bellas Artes. The theatre is magnificent and so was the performance. We were in the medium-priced seats, which were in the first balcony--great seats.

For approx $50 (US) you cn get a center orchestra seat and see a beautiful 1 1/2 hr spectacle of color, dance and music. Just seeing the inside of the beautiful Bellas Artes building is nearly worth the price of admission, currently performances are Sunday morningsm Sunday evenings and Wednesday afternoons, strongly recommend sun am at 9:30 as seems not...

We thought Ballet Folklorico was not performing while we were in town, It was! If you are a teacher have your ID for a discount. Show was from 9-10:30 non-stop. This is not a Ballet - - it's better. Dances and "costumes" from the different Mexican states are represented - WELL. Lots of fun, color and entertainment,

The Ballet Folklorico and its locale, the Palacio de Bellas Artes, deserve 5 stars without a doubt. The show is fascinating, well orchestrated, and never gets tedious. You leave with great admiration for Mexico's musical diversity. We attended a Saturday morning performance and had seats in the sixth row. The hall was very dark, allowing us to concentrate on the...

This show exceeded all of my expectations and was a delightful find in the city. There were approximately 40 dancers and 10 musicians who were all wonderfully talented, and the costumes were brilliantly colorful. Our seats each cost $300mx and were in the highest balcony, but they still offered a great vantage point. One advantage of being so high up... More
