About Ballet Hispanico Company
The main intent behind starting the company was to establish the Hispanic culture in the American dance society. Tina Ramirez wanted to show the role of Hispanics and Latin Americans in shaping American dance history over the centuries.
Tina Ramirez was the artistic director of Ballet Hispanico for thirty-nine years. She invited around fifty choreographers from various backgrounds to promote Spanish-speaking cultures using modern-day interpretations and dance forms.
Many noteworthy dancers and ballet artists visited the company at her request. She was also known for nurturing young artists early in their careers and providing them the opportunities to learn, improve, and present their skills.
The company doesn’t limit itself to ballet. The School of Dance teaches ballet, classic Spanish dance forms, and contemporary styles. It has separate programs for pre-schoolers and adults. It also offers a general program and pre-professional training for dancers at different stages of their careers.
Eduardo Vilaro, a Cuban-American dancer and choreographer, became the artistic director of Ballet Hispanico in 2009. He was a former dancer at the company and worked with it for nine years (1988 to 1996).
He went on to start Luna Negra Dance Theater in Chicago and worked with it for another ten years. When Eduardo returned in 2009 to Ballet Hispanico, he was made the artistic director and the CEO.
Tina Ramirez is a winner of the National Medal of Arts. The country was in the middle of the post-war civil rights moment when she established the Ballet Hispanico Company. She played a vital role in uplifting marginalized communities and providing them with artistic sanctuary.
The company performs in the US, South America, and Europe. It has more than seventy-five works to its name. Ballet Hispanico commissioned around eighty works and acquired eleven more to add to its tally.
The dancers enthrall audiences during the yearly shows. Check out our site for details about the shows.
