Ballet Folklorico de Mexico de Amalia Hernandez Perform at the Gallo Center TodayAdmired as the finest dance ensemble of its kind in the world, Ballet Folklórico de México de Amalia Hernández perform at the Gallo Center for the Arts at 7:30 pm tonight, Thursday, August 7. The troupe's previous appearance at the performing arts venue, in November 2012, sold out.

Hernández founded Ballet Folklórico de México in 1952, having embarked at a very early age on a quest to sustain the dancing traditions of Mexico. The company has since created more than 40 ballets incorporating local dance traditions from some 60 regions of Mexico, presented more than 5,000 performances, and won more than 200 awards for artistic achievement. Though Hernandez passed away in 2000, the company remains an enduring tribute to critically beloved dancer and choreographer.
