New York, NY – Ballet Hispanico, the nation’s premier Latino dance organization, celebrates its 45th anniversary New York Season at the Joyce Theater from April 5-10, 2016 with eight performances featuring a New York Premiere and a special matinee for children and families. Tickets start at $10 and are on sale now at www.joyce.org.
Artistic Director and CEO Eduardo Vilaro debuts a program that promises to be as transcendent as the company’s “extremely capable and charismatic dancers” (The New York Times), featuring Ballet Hispanico’s effervescent signature work Club Havana by Cuban-American choreographer Pedro Ruiz along with a double bill of Spanish favorites: the New York Premiere of Gustavo Ramírez Sansano’s colorful, amusing and fast-moving Flabbergast, as well as a revival of Ramón Oller’s beloved and haunting Bury Me Standing.
“Our Joyce program this year showcases the breadth and range of the company over the past 45 years of artistic reflection,” said Eduardo Vilaro, Artistic Director and CEO of Ballet Hispanico. “Pedro Ruiz and Ramón Oller both have a meaningful history with Ballet Hispanico, and Gustavo Ramírez Sansano has quickly established himself as a standout choreographic voice since we introduced his work to New York audiences two years ago. Their works honor Ballet Hispanico’s trajectory while embracing our forward-thinking spirit.”
In keeping with its mission to make the beauty of the arts and Latino culture accessible to all communities, Ballet Hispanico for the second year brings its En Familia matinee to the Joyce Theater: a 90-minute, fun-filled journey through Latin American dance and culture featuring Artistic Director Eduardo Vilaro and Education Director AnaMaria Correa as co-hosts, excerpts from Ballet Hispanico’s diverse repertory and a Q&A with the dancers. Tickets for the En Familia matinee are $10-25.
