New York, NY – May 18, 2016 – Ballet Hispánico raised more than $1 million in support of the company’s artistic and educational work in New York City and around the country at their 2016 Gala on Monday, May 16, 2016. 

 

Ballet Hispánico honored Richard E. Feldman with the Civic Inspiration Award and Linda Celeste Sims with the Nuestra Inspiración Award.  The evening’s festivities were hosted by Univision personality Lili Estefan, co-host of the network’s “El Gordo y La Flaca.” Proceeds from the evening will benefit the creation of new Company works, need-based financial aid and merit scholarships in the Ballet Hispánico School of Dance, and community arts education programs.  

 

“We are thrilled to announce that we exceeded our goal of $1 million,” said Kate Lear, Chair of Ballet Hispanico’s Board of Directors. “The overwhelming generosity of our attendees and donors, along with the breathtaking talent of our professional and student dancers, made for a fantastic event with which to celebrate Ballet Hispánico’s 45 years of changing lives.”  

 

This year’s Gala, themed “Carnaval” and attended by 325 guests, was a Latino celebration of life through music and dance, featuring performances by the Ballet Hispánico Company, the rising stars of second company BHdos and students of the Ballet Hispánico School of Dance, along with live music by Latin band Los Hacheros.
