“One of the best contemporary repertory ensembles,” (The New York Times) Ballet Hispánico recently celebrated five decades of lush and virtuosic dance that fuses Latin culture with contemporary technique. Theatricality and passion propel every move as Ballet Hispánico performs the Philadelphia premieres of Club Havana, an intoxicating mash-up of beloved Latin styles, Con Brazos Abiertos, a fun and honest look of life caught between Mexican and American cultures, and Línea Recta, a powerful exploration of flamenco and its lack of physical partnering. “The versatile Ballet Hispánico dancers are exquisite” so don’t miss this “cutting-edge crowd pleaser." (The Washington Post)
