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 West Coast 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.
“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,” said Eduardo Vilaro, Artistic Director and CEO of Ballet Hispanico.
In keeping with its mission to make the beauty of the arts and Latino culture accessible to all communities, Ballet Hispanico’s Eduardo Vilaro and Sr. Director of Community Engagement AnaMaria Correa will be leading a series of arts education activities in local schools throughout the week.
