From its grass­roots ori­gins as a dance school and com­mu­ni­ty-based per­form­ing arts troupe, Bal­let His­páni­co has grown into a world-class insti­tu­tion.

Rec­og­nized for her achieve­ments by the Nation­al Medal of Arts, the nation’s high­est cul­tur­al hon­or, Tina Ramirez found­ed Bal­let His­páni­co in 1970. From its grass­roots ori­gins as a dance school and com­mu­ni­ty-based per­form­ing arts troupe, the orga­ni­za­tion has grown into a world-class insti­tu­tion. Bal­let Hispánico’s New York City head­quar­ters house a School of Dance and state-of-the-art dance stu­dios for its pro­grams and the arts com­mu­ni­ty.

In August 2009, Bal­let His­páni­co wel­comed Eduar­do Vilaro as its Artis­tic Direc­tor. A for­mer mem­ber of the Bal­let His­páni­co Com­pa­ny, Vilaro found­ed and led Chicago’s Luna Negra Dance The­ater for a decade. Vilaro’s back­ground in dance edu­ca­tion and com­mu­ni­ty out­reach allows him to build on the company’s found­ing val­ues and lead Bal­let His­páni­co into an artis­ti­cal­ly vibrant future.
