Ballet Hispanico explores, preserves, and expands the passion and joyous theatricality of Latino dance through the work in its three core divisions: the Company, the School of Dance, and Primeros Pasos. Its mission is to celebrate and further interpret the moving and beautiful aesthetic of this dynamic culture and to share it with all people.

Each season, Artistic Director Tina Ramirez brings into the company’s active repertory a select group of works, choosing from among newly commissioned ballets and previous repertory to illustrate the range and richness of Hispanic culture in today’s world. In general, three of these works are presented at each performance during the company’s New York season and on tour. The 2007-2008 season includes the works Palladium Nights, Caravanserai, Tito on Timbales, Club Havana, Ritmo y Ruido, Dejame Sonar, and Ballet Hispanico Excerpts.

In this SundayArts profile, get a look at Ballet Hispanico’s rehearsal process for Palladium Nights.
