¡CELEBRACIÓN! Kick-off Event Ballet Hispánico
Ballet Hispánico brings communities together to celebrate and explore Latin cultures through innovative productions, transformative dance training and community engagement while celebrating the dynamic aesthetics of Latin culture. This all-Latina-choreographed engagement features Con Brazos Abiertos, an exploration of iconic Mexican symbols; Línea Recta a work pairing the hallmark passion of Columbian amenco dance with highly inventive partnering, performed with an original guitar composition: and Catorce Dieciséis, which draws inspiration from the number Pi to reflect on the circularity of the human condition.
Led by award-winning Artistic Director Eduardo Vilaro, the Ballet Hispánico Company has performed for audiences totaling over 3 million, throughout 11 countries, and on 3 continents.
“The members of Ballet Hispánico are 12 of the most technically accomplished and musical dancers you’ll find in the contemporary sphere.” –The Washington Post
