Ballet Hispánico, America’s leading Latino dance organization, has been bringing individuals and communities together to celebrate and explore Latino cultures through dance for nearly 50 years. Whether dancing on stage, in school, or in the street, Ballet Hispánico creates a space where few institutions are breaking ground.
Founded in 1970 by a National Medal of Arts recipient, the dancer and choreographer Tina Ramirez, the Company commissions and presents dances reflecting the experience of Hispanic and Latinos and describes itself as “the foremost dance representative of Hispanic culture in the United States.”
Today, Ballet Hispánico is led by Eduardo Vilaro, an acclaimed choreographer and former member of the Company, whose vision of social equity, cultural identity, and quality arts education for all drives its programs. The Ballet is a role model in and for the Latino community, and inspires creativity and social awareness in our neighborhoods and across the country by providing access to arts education.
