Adriana Sananes narrates with the exuberance and lightness of voice that Amalia Hernandez, the founder of the Ballet Folklórico de México, choreographs into her dances. Young listeners will revel in this biography of Hernandez, beginning with her early love of dance--both ballet and modern--and then following Amalia as she travels around Mexico collecting ideas about dance, history, art, and costumes to weave into her works. Recognition for Hernandez and her dance company spread throughout the world. Sananes sets a fast pace, and repeated listens are helpful to take in the whole story. An author's note adds many details about Hernandez's life and the increased interest in Mexican folkloric dances, as does the glossary. Mexican music provides background sound throughout.
