Ballet Hispanico, the nation’s premier Latino dance organization is all set to celebrate its 45th anniversary New York Season at the Joyce Theater from April 5-10, 2016 with eight performances featuring a New York Premiere and a special matinee for children and families. Tickets are on sale now at

The show will feature Ballet Hispanico’s effervescent signature work Club Havana by Cuban-American choreographer Pedro Ruiz along with a double bill of Spanish favorites: the New York Premiere of Gustavo Ramírez Sansano’s colorful, amusing and fast-moving Flabbergast, as well as a revival of Ramón Oller’s beloved and haunting Bury Me Standing.

“Our Joyce program this year showcases the breadth and range of the company over the past 45 years of artistic reflection. Pedro Ruiz and Ramón Oller both have a meaningful history with Ballet Hispanico, and Gustavo Ramírez Sansano has quickly established himself as a standout choreographic voice since we introduced his work to New York audiences two years ago. Their works honor Ballet Hispanico’s trajectory while embracing our forward-thinking spirit.” Eduardo Vilaro, Artistic Director and CEO of Ballet Hispanico
