Description:

As a child, Amalia always thought she would grow up to be a teacher-that is, until she saw dancers perform in her town square. She was fascinated by the way they twirled and swayed, and she knew that someday she would be a dancer, too. When she began to study dance, she studied many different types, including ballet and modern, under some of the best teachers in the world. But she didn't stop there. She also traveled throughout Mexico to learn its regional dances. Soon, she founded her own dance company, El Ballet Folklorico de Mexico, where she integrated her knowledge of ballet and modern dance with folkloric dances. Her company then began performing all over the country- and soon all over the world-and became an international sensation that still tours today.

Quotes:

Tonatiuh tells Hernandez's story with careful attention to detail and with obvious admiration for the subject...His digitized, hand-drawn illustrations are striking. They showcase, in his signature style based on Mixtec art, the beauty and grace of many different dance styles., Kirkus

This energetic adaptation of Duncan Tonatiuh’s book honoring Mexican dance-legend Amalia Hernández begins, fittingly, with a blast of horn-driven Mexican folk music as animated dancers rendered in Tonatiuh’s signature drawing style whirl across the screen., Booklist
