Fusing Latin dance with classical and contemporary techniques, Ballet Hispanico creates a new style of concert dance incorporating theatricality, passion and choreographers representing Venezuela, Cuba, Trinidad, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Spain, Brazil, Argentina and Colombia. From its grassroots origins as a dance school and community-based performing arts troupe, Ballet Hispanico has grown into a world-class towering, influential institution. Elegant, lyrical and smart, under the leadership of Eduardo Vilaro, the company continues along the trail it has blazed for more than 40 years, exploring the Latino voice in modern dance. Planned program to include Linea Recta, Catorce Dieciseis, and more!
