Ballet Hispanico

American Dance Festival at DPAC

Jun 20 - 21 , 2014

Ballet Hispanico’s fresh repertory melds Latin dance with classical and contemporary techniques to create a new theatrical and passionate style. Led by Artistic Director Eduardo Vilaro, Ballet Hispanico makes its ADF debut with a spectacular program including Vilaro’s Danzón, a work that takes a traditional and quintessentially Cuban dance form and reinvents it with contemporary movement riffs. Annabelle Lopez Ochoa’s Sombrerísimo is an athletic tour de force for six men, full of rhythmic agility and stylistic flair. Show.Girl., a new work commissioned by ADF, is the much-anticipated latest creation by ADF audience favorite, Rosie Herrera.

Show.Girl. by Rosie Herrera is commissioned by ADF with support from The Mary Duke Biddle Foundation and the Doris Duke/SHS Foundations Award for New Dance.
