One simply cannot praise enough this amazing ensemble which Amalia Hernandez established in teh 1950s, more or less at the same time as Sonia Osorio established her Colombian Folkloric Ballet. The dancers are spectacular, performing with joy and boundless vitality and also very attractive. The...More

The Ballet Folkloric de Mexico was the highlight of my Mexico city trip. We purchased tickets in advance through Ticketmaster which, as usual, charged ridiculous fees during purchase and again at ticket pickup. The tickets came online very late, only about 1 week before the...More

The Ballet Folkloric de Mexico is not a ballet as some people thinks. It is a folkloric show that started in 1952 where ballet dancers perform traditional Mexican dances and amazing Mexican music, including a great Mariachi. This is a must see if you're visiting...More

I found the description of this performance very misleading. There was only a tiny amount of ballet and mostly entirely made up of the folk dancing. I was expecting a larger mix of both and therefore myself and my partner were dissapointed and bored. Although...More

Ballet Folklorico is one the more accomplished and established dance collectives in Mexico City. We saw them at the Belle Arts center, which is in itself a marble wonder and is very fun to explore. As others said, this is not a ballet performance --...More

The ticket price is extremely pricy compare to the actual price shown on the tickets. There was no tour whatsoever, but rather just a van ride from and to the hotel. Completely a fraud!

This beautiful park was once the playground for the
wealthiest families in the colonial era, and is now
the perfect place where locals and visitors can spend
a sunny weekend afternoon to relax or shop for
souvenirs at the market. Kids can run around or grab a
bite of cotton candy while teens and adults wander
around admiring the charming gardens and the
sculptures that adorn it. Once the heat rises, it may

Most of the people attending the performance are tourists, and it is in nice theater (not outside), so it is really up to you, though people tend to be dressed up a bit.
