Dubbed "Performances for Young People," Ballet Hispánico's dance theater experience will take audiences on a guided journey through Latinx dance and culture. This interactive, fun-filled exploration features excerpts of the Ballet Hispánico repertoire narrated by our artistic leadership. Music, cultural connections, choreography insights, and history come together to deepen the audience’s experience of dance. Students are exposed to world-class choreographers and cultural contexts while learning about Latinx icons such as Celia Cruz and Tito Puente. The dance troupe will provide audiences the opportunity to interact with our teaching artists and educators through a live dance session and a Q&A.
