Ballet Hispanico - Second Company BHdos to Perform 9/2
Ballet Hispanico, recognized as the preeminent Latino dance institution in the United States, announces the first performance of the Fall 2012 Season for BHdos, the company’s pre-professional troupe. On September 2, 2012 at 2pm, the company will perform at Central Park’s Charles A. Dana Discover Center. The performance is the closing event of the Harlem Meer Performance Festival. The event is free and information can be found at http://support.centralparknyc.org/site/Calendar/1221481553?view=Detail&id=117125.
Handpicked by Artistic Director Eduardo Vilaro, the talented pre-professional dancers of Ballet Hispanico’s second company form bridges: between the School of Dance and the professional Company, between Ballet Hispanico and the community, and between their own training and careers in dance. Under the guidance of Deputy School Director Nicholas Villeneuve, dancers work with highly-skilled artistic leadership to bring Latino culture to schools, communities and corporations. With engaging and interactive performances, this third season of BHdos leads audiences through an exciting exploration of dance influenced by Spain and Latin America. Each fully-costumed performance features the impressive choreography from the current Ballet Hispanico repertory, including recently debuted works by Eduardo Vilaro and Annabelle Lopez Ochoa.
