Ballet Hispánico is Coming to Tarrytown

• Bookmarks: 58

September 17, 2022

For more than 50 years, Ballet Hispánico has been a symbol and projection of Latinx culture in the United States. Its founder, Tina Ramirez, was a National Medal of Arts recipient. On October 1st, RiverArts will present a one-night-only performance at Tarrytown Music Hall. The curtain rises at 7:30 pm.

Through its company, its School of Dance, and through Community Arts Partnerships, Ballet Hispánico has carried Latinx art, culture and tradition into the larger American community, while it has provided a haven for Black and Brown youth.

Work for The Hud Indy

Since 2009, the company has been led by Eduardo Vilaro, who brings a fresh energy to the tradition. Its New York City headquarters on West 89th Street houses a School of Dance and state-of-the-art dance studios for its programs and the arts community. From its grassroots origins as a dance school and community-based performing arts troupe, for fifty years Ballet Hispánico has stood as a catalyst for social change and is an exemplar of diversity, equity and inclusion.

The Tarrytown performance is for one night only. The curtain rises at 7:30 pm. Tickets can be purchased online at: https://riverarts.org/event/riverarts-presents-ballet-hispanico/
