Ballet Hispanico has been around 45 years. Artistic director Eduardo Vilaro says it all started with dancer and choreographer Tina Ramirez.
Ballet Hispanico has produced world class performances in 11 countries for over 3 million people. Vilaro says the company has continued Ramirez's vision plus more.
Audiences can see the company's evolution in new work being choreographed by Brazilian artist Fernando Melo. Our cameras got a sneak peek of the performance. His work is abstract and poetic not the conventional contemporary dance piece everyone would expect, especially out of Brazil. 15 dancers will share the stage with a musician.
If you want to see more Ballet Hispanico you can do so on November 20 and 21st at the Apollo Theater at 8 p.m.
