Ballet Folklórico de México

  • Helzberg Hall | Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts 1601 Broadway Kansas City, MO, 64108 United States (map)

Ballet Folklórico de México has been bringing vibrant Mexican music and dance to audiences around the world for more than 60 years. The famed ensemble will fill Helzberg Hall with an eye-popping performance featuring colorful costumes, thrilling live music and spectacular dance moves that showcase Mexico's rich cultural heritage. 

Founded in 1952 by dancer and choreographer Amalia Hernández, Ballet Folklórico brings together the music, dance, and costumes of Mexican folklore from pre-Colombian civilizations through the modern era. With its permanent home at the Palacio de Bellas Artes, one of Mexico City’s most historic venues, the company has developed choreography for 40 ballets, composed of 76 folk dancers who have performed extensively across Mexico and abroad. 

In addition, members will lead a free master class at 11 a.m. Saturday, November 3, at Guadalupe Centers in Kansas City. See the education event page for more information.
