Founded in 1970 by Tina Ramirez, Ballet Hispanico is celebrating its 40th anniversary as the nation’s preeminent Hispanic-American dance institution. Now under the artistic leadership of Eduardo Vilaro, Ballet Hispanico continues to rouse audiences worldwide with its magnetic energy, vivacious choreography and sheer passion. The acclaimed company’s 13 members perform works by the foremost Latino choreographers as well as those of emerging artists. Ballet Hispanico has performed for more than two million people in the United States, Europe and South America with its repertoire of more than 100 works that fuse ballet, modern and Latin dance forms into a spirited image of contemporary Latino culture.
Ballet Hispanico will perform a selection of new and classic works, including Club Havana (2000), an intoxicating mix of conga, rumba, mambo and cha-cha; Destino Incierto (2008), an emotional journey taken by three timeless characters struggling to find harmony for themselves and with one another; Tríptico (2009), an elegant fusion of Latin rhythms and dance; and Batucada Fantástica (company premiere 1982), evoking the essence of Brazilian Carnival through eight electric solos, culminating in a riotous ensemble finale.
