MAKING IT THEIR OWN
Ballet Hispanico has electrifying original moves, classic techniques and Latino soul that are prime ingredients necessary for an unbelievable show. And they continue to deliver culturally specific, relevant work for the 21st century under the artistic leadership of Eduardo Vilaro. The program features two works by Vilaro and Ron K. Brown (Evidence, A Dance Company).
“When Ballet Hispanico’s dancers take the stage, watch out. No one struts, kicks, spins, leaps and gyrates the way they do.” — NEW YORK NEWSDAY
