We are pleased to announce a very special event with Ballet Hispánico.
Ballet Hispánico, the nation’s premier Latino dance organization, has been bringing communities together to celebrate and explore Latino cultures through innovative productions, transformative dance training, and community engagement for nearly 50 years. Led by Artistic Director & CEO Eduardo Vilaro, the Company is a group of highly trained professionals who perform the works of Latino choreographers for audiences around the world. Ballet Hispánico’s repertory explores the diversity of Latino cultures and brings innovative ways of experiencing and sharing a cultural dialogue. The Company recently performed Gustavo Ramírez Sansano’s CARMEN.maquia at the Apollo Theater and will perform at The Joyce Theater in late March.
In addition to its Company, Ballet Hispánico has a School of Dance, which trains eclectic, versatile dancers who stand out in a competitive professional environment for their mastery of the classical ballet tradition, contemporary techniques, and Spanish dance; and a Community Arts Partnerships Program, which provides exploratory learning experiences of Latino cultures in New York City and around the world in schools, businesses, community centers, public spaces, and university campuses.
