Ballet Folklórico de México,

Mexico's national dance company. It was founded in 1952 by the dancer, choreographer, and teacher Amalia Hernández. Sponsored by the Mexican government, it is headquartered at the National Institute of Fine Arts in Mexico City and regularly tours worldwide. It began as a company of eight dancers that produced dances based on Mexican folklore for television and concert performance. Greatly enlarged, it has become one of the world's preeminent folk-ballet companies, and presents a wide range of colorful dances that spotlight Mexico's regions, history, and culture. The company also runs a dance school.
