The nightlife in Mexico City is second to none and provides an array of entertainment, but this show — the 'Best Dance Show of the World in Mexico' — is not to be missed. Watch a performance of the renowned Mexico City Folkloric Ballet (Ballet Folklorico). For three hours, you’ll be mesmerized by dance choreography from Mexico’s past and today, and you'll find the onstage energy and dancers in their vibrant costumes infectious. Hotel transport included.
What to Expect
After pickup from your hotel in the downtown Mexico City, Reforma or Polanco area, travel by air-conditioned coach with your guide to one of Ballet Folklorico of Mexico’s four rotating venues.

Settle into your seat and discover for yourself what makes this performance the 'Best Dance Show of the World in Mexico.’ Witness the Mexico of yesterday and today during three hours of entertainment with stirring folk songs and dances, including mariachi music. Founded by Amalia Hernandez, the Ballet Folklorico of Mexico has performed more than 15,000 shows to 22 million people worldwide. The folk dance company is dedicated to preserving Mexico’s traditional arts by filming dances, recording music and photographing costumes from regions throughout Mexico, and presents these forms on stage.

Listen to the music and watch each choreographed dance to learn about the folk traditions from various populations in Mexico, ranging from the Yucatan Peninsula’s Maya empire to the cowboy cultures of Spanish-colonized Jalisco. Multi-colored shawls, embroidered shirts, sombreros, fans and ribbons are all part of the cultural spectacle.

After the final bows from the cast, board your coach for transport back to your hotel.
