Award-winning author and illustrator Duncan Tonatiuh tells the story of Amalia Hernández, dancer and founder of El Ballet Folklórico de México. Published in time for the 100th anniversary of Hernández's birth, Danza! is the first picture book about the famous dancer and choreographer. Danza! is a celebration of Hernández's life and of the rich history of dance in Mexico. As a child, Amalia always thought she would grow up to be a teacher, until she saw a performance of dancers in her town square. She was fascinated by the way the dancers twirled and swayed, and she knew that someday she would be a dancer, too. She began to study many different types of dance, including ballet and modern, under some of the best teachers in the world. Hernández traveled throughout Mexico studying and learning regional dances. Soon she founded her own dance company, El Ballet Folklórico de México, where she integrated her knowledge of ballet and modern dance with folkloric dances. The group began to perform all over the country and soon all over the world, becoming an international sensation that still tours today. Duncan Tonatiuh's picture books have been honored with many awards and accolades, including the Pura Belpré Award, the Robert F. Sibert Award, and the New York Times Best Illustrated Book Award. With Tonatiuh's distinctive Mixtec-inspired artwork and colorful drawings that seem to leap off the page, Danza! will enthrall and inspire young readers with the fascinating story of this important dancer and choreographer.… (més)

This biography for kids is about the life of Amalia Hernández Navarro, born in 1917, who became a Mexican ballet choreographer and founder of the world-renowned Ballet Folklórico de México.

Tonatiuh relates that as a child, Hernández was transformed by a danza (“a dance that is performed for an audience or one that has ceremonial purposes” according to the glossary with pronunciation guide at the end of a book) she witnessed while on vacation with her family. He writes, “Ami (as she was known) was hooked. She made a decision: she was going to become a dancer herself.”

She studied dancing while young, and when she grew up, she traveled throughout Mexico to learn the dances of different regions. When she founded her ballet company, she incorporated all of these traditions into her choreography.

Hernández founded the Mexican Folkloric Ballet in 1952 at age 35 with only 8 dancers. By 1959, the ensemble had grown to 60 performers. It was commissioned to represent Mexico at the Pan American Games in Chicago, Illinois, in 1959.

Hernández strove to highlight champion the folklore and dances of Mexico. As Tonatiuh writes in his Author’s Note at the conclusion of the book:

“She was always clear about her intentions . . . namely, to preserve and capture the spirit of traditional dances, which exist for ceremonial or social purposes, and adapt them so they can be enjoyed in a theater.”

In particular, she focused on Mesoamerican cultures through her dancing, making her story a perfect fit for author/illustrator Duncan Tonatiuh.

Tonatiuh, who is an award-winning illustrator, is known for his gorgeous folkloric art work inspired by Mixtec (native Mexican) codices from the 14th century. He juxtaposes the indigenous style with modern characters and settings. He also uses the pictures to enlarge upon the text.

The simplicity of the illustrations (which also tell the story without words) serve to extend the appropriate reading level of this book, suggested for ages 6 and up.

Evaluation:. I have yet to be disappointed by a book written and illustrated by Tonatiuh. He adds a social awareness of struggles for inequality to his stories, as well as an appreciation for the culture of our neighbor to the South. His depiction of the richness of Mexico’s culture is a welcome contrast to the plethora of negative portrayals in the media. ( )

Int.-Middle. This picture book talks about the life of Amalia Hernandez and her journey with dance. She began learning ballet as a young girl in Mexico and eventually began choreographing Ballet Folklorico. This is a great book for teaching history and incorporating dance into the classroom.

This is the true story of Amalia Hernandez and El Ballet Folklorico do Mexico. Amalia is going to be a teacher liker her mother but she sees some dancers in the street one day and decides that is what she really wants to do. Her father is against it at first, but then he decides to support her and brings in some of the best teachers for her to learn the skill of dance. She blended the styles of dance that she learned to choreograph dances that people loved. She also made sure to use traditional Mexican folk dances in her dance styles. Amalia's company became world famous and she brought her culture to many other people. She eventually opened up her own dance studio to teach others as well. The dance studio she created is still preforming in Mexico city today. ( )
