Tour description provided by Viator

See the world-famous Mexico City Folkloric Ballet (Ballet Folklorico) at one of four rotating venues. You’ll witness the Mexico of yesterday and today during three hours of entertainment with beautiful folk songs and dances, including mariachi music. The onstage energy and dancers in their fabulous costumes make it the 'Best Dance Show of the World in Mexico'! Accompaniment by a guide plus hotel pickup and drop-off from downtown Mexico City, Reforma or Polanco are included with your admission.

The nightlife in Mexico City is second to none and provides an enormous variety of entertainment – but this is one show not to be missed!

For approximately sixty years the Ballet Folklorico of Mexico, founded by artistic director Amalia Hernandez, has performed more than 15,000 shows to 22 million people worldwide. The folk dance company preserves Mexico’s traditional arts by filming dances, recording music and photographing costumes from regions throughout Mexico, and presents these forms on stage.

Marvel at the dancers in their magnificent costumes – including multi-colored shawls, embroidered shirts, sombreros, fans and ribbons – as they entertain audiences of all ages. You’ll enjoy this vibrant spectacle full of movement and exciting rhythms that delight the senses.

As you listen to the music and watch each choreographed dance, learn about the folk traditions from various populations in Mexico – from the Mayan Empire of the Yucatan Peninsula to the cowboy cultures of Spanish-colonized Jalisco.
