Ballet Hispánico, the nation’s premier Latino dance organization, brings its bold and eclectic brand of contemporary dance to the Northeast Kingdom. The organization’s founder, National Medal of Arts recipient Tina Ramirez, sought to give voice to the Hispanic experience and break through stereotypes. Today, Ballet Hispánico is led by Eduardo Vilaro, an acclaimed choreographer and former member of the Company, whose vision of artistic excellence, social equity, and cultural identity and high quality arts education for all drives its programs.
The Company is a group of highly trained professionals who perform the works of Latino choreographers for audiences around the world. Their repertory explores the diversity of Latino cultures and brings innovative ways of experiencing and sharing a cultural dialogue. Representing a multitude of nationalities, our artists reflect the ever-changing face of our nation.
Please note: We’ll present a Thursday, April 25th workshop of “Latin social dancing” for one and all. Contact Molly Stone (email@example.com) for details of time and place – and to sign up. All are welcomed.
