Let's Get Folky


Whether you are someone who simply loves Mexico's beaches and tropical drinks, or a person who has delved a bit more deeply into the cultural offerings of our vibrant neighbor to the south, you will definitely find something to appreciate at Ballet Folklórico de México's upcoming concerts. Held at the Fox Theatre (527 North Grand Boulevard) at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday (January 29 and 30), these dance events promise vivid and flouncy costumes, a vast number of dance styles (many descending from folk traditions), live music and a fair amount of fun, all thanks to the company that was founded by Amalia Hernández in Mexico in 1952. To secure a seat in the theater for one of Ballet Folklórico de México's dazzling cultural concerts — and to watch as dancers weave together the history of a nation — call MetroTix at 314-534-1111 or visit; tickets cost $30 to $65.
