Special Performance: Join us for the grand finale to the Performance Festival’s 19th season: a special Central Park-inspired dance performance (with an opportunity to join in!) by Ballet Hispanico’s BHdos company on September 2, 2012.


Handpicked by Artistic Director Eduardo Vilaro, the talented pre-professional dancers of Ballet Hispanico’s second company form bridges: between the School of Dance and the professional Company, between Ballet Hispanico and the community, and between their own training and careers in dance. Under the guidance of Deputy School Director Nicholas Villeneuve, dancers work with highly-skilled artistic leadership to bring Latino culture to schools, communities and corporations. With engaging and interactive performances, this third season of BHdos leads audiences through an exciting exploration of dance influenced by Spain and Latin America. Each fully-costumed performance features the impressive choreography from the current Ballet Hispanico repertory.
