For fifty years Ballet Hispánico has been the leading voice intersecting artistic excellence and advocacy, and is now the largest Latinx cultural organization in the United States and one of America’s Cultural Treasures.
Ballet Hispánico brings communities together to celebrate and explore Latino cultures through innovative dance productions, transformative dance training, and enduring community engagement experiences.
Their enviable group-vibe is at once mesmerizing and inviting — I had a fleeting vision of audience members rushing to join them, as if it were a line dance at a wedding — while the smaller groupings offer lovely, more detailed portraits of the dancers.Janine Parker – Boston Globe
Through its exemplary artistry, distinguished training program, and deep-rooted community engagement efforts Ballet Hispánico champions and amplifies underrepresented voices in the field. For fifty years Ballet Hispánico has provided a place of honor for the omitted, overlooked, and oppressed. As it looks to the next fifty years and beyond, Ballet Hispánico seeks to empower, and give agency to, the Latinx experience and those individuals within it.
Bringing advocacy to the Latin community since 1970, Ballet Hispánico has bridged a gap many talented artists needed to gain the skills necessary to transform their raw talent into the trained vibrant dancers, who represent the core mission of this wonderful organization. It is with immense pride that The Hanover Theatre and Conservatory welcomes Ballet Hispánico this spring for their Nocho de Oro (Night of Gold) 50th Anniversary Program. This will be an enchanting evening, full of talent and innovative dancing. Come see for yourself how this organization has grown from its founded day in 1970, to the haven for the Brown and Black Latinx community seeking the ‘cultural sanctuary’ it is today. Show takes place April 22nd and with tickets starting at only $39 they are sure to sell out fast. Purchase your ticket today! This is a must-see event.
Born in Caracas, Venezuela in the late 1920s, Tina Ramirez moved to New York City in her early years, becoming a young dance student immersed in the dance world, training rigorously in three separate styles of dance performances. At only 34, Tina Ramirez took over a dance studio and acquired federal funding through an ‘anti-poverty program’ to allow Latino students of lesser means the opportunity to receive professional dance education. Only seven years later, Tina Ramirez founded Ballet Hispánico, where she ‘consistently gave exposure to fresh talent’. Ballet Hispánico has exploded into a well-regarded organization, with performances for over two million people worldwide. Come see for yourself the amazing result of Tina Ramirez vision and hard work. The Hanover Theatre and Conservatory has put together different price points for this show to ensure affordability for everyone! Join us April 22nd at 8pm, you will be glad you did.
