Celebrated as “hands down the leading Hispanic-American dance company” (Buenos Aires Herald), the sexy Ballet Hispanico teams up with the 19-member, Grammy Award-winning Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra for a sizzling hot, Latin dance party. With the company’s signature dances Club Havana and Tito on Timbales, the stage will ignite with the infectious rhythms of Cuban, jazz and big-band music and the stylish Latin social dances of Rumba, Salsa, Cha-cha, and Mambo. The result is a fiery evening that “makes you want to get up and dance” (The New York Times).
“Ballet Hispanico is a good-time company…sleek, gorgeous dancers blending modern, ballroom and ballet in fizzy cocktails that go down easy.” —The New York Sun
