In 1952, Amalia Hernández, dancer and choreographer, founded the Ballet to perform weekly on television as part of her never-ending quest to rescue the dancing traditions of Mexico. The vital search became a basic need to reflect the beauty of the Universe in motion which started with the pre-Colombian civilizations and grew with the Hispanic influences through history - a history you will experience as the present time and place fade away as soon as the curtain rises.
