A Victoria Premiere! Ballet Hispánico Program Features
Works by Three Female Choreographers
Ballet Hispánico, the premier Latino dance organization, brings its bold and eclectic brand of contemporary dance to the Royal Theatre with a program by three internationally recognized female choreographers on April 6 and 7, 2018. Tickets start at $29 and are on sale now at dancevictoria.com.
“The program showcases the talents of three exciting Latina choreographic voices,” said Eduardo Vilaro, Artistic Director and CEO, Ballet Hispánico. “Ballet Hispánico’s commitment to presenting diverse perspectives has never been stronger or more necessary.”
Currently Director of Ballet Hispánico’s School of Dance, Michelle Manzanales’s Con Brazos Abiertos (With Open Arms) explores with humility, nostalgia and humour, the iconic Mexican symbols that she was reluctant to embrace as a Mexican- American child growing up in Texas. Intertwining folkloric details with a distinctly contemporary voice in dance, set to music that ranges from Julio Iglesias to rock en español, Con Brazos Abiertos is a fun and frank look at a life caught between two cultures.
