The concert was shaped by musical excellence and by the successful realization of several discrete goals. Contemporary composers, represented by both short, occasional pieces and monumental works, were championed; young artists’ careers were moved forward; neglected music was brought out for renewal.
I know that I will never know any of the repertoire on your concert, but I know that I will always love the program. These are events which should not be missed!

UPCA Presents: Ballet Hispánico en Familia
March 11, 2017, 2:00pm - March 11, 2017, 3:30pm
Bring the whole family to a 90-minute, fun-filled journey through Latin American dance and culture featuring Artistic Director Eduardo Vilaro as host, excerpts from Ballet Hispánico’s diverse repertory and a Q&A with the dancers. March 11, 2017 Doors 1pm, Show 2pm, Q&A 3pm $15 - $25; FREE for children 12 and under Repertory for Ballet Hispánico en Familia includes: Línea Recta (2016) Choreography by Annabelle Lopez Ochoa From one of today’s most sought-after choreographers comes a powerful and resonant work that explores an intriguing aspect of flamenco dance: the conspicuous absence of physical contact between dancers. While maintaining the integrity and hallmark passion of the genre, Belgo-Colombian Annabelle Lopez Ochoa imagines an original and explosive movement language premised upon the theme of communication between the sexes and performed to an original guitar composition by Eric Vaarzon Morel. Flabbergast (2001) Choreography by Gustavo Ramírez Sansano Latin lounge meets spontaneous combustion in this quirky yet joyful piece set to the music of Juan García Esquivel. Inspired by his experience of coming to America for the first time, choreographer Gustavo Ramírez Sansano exposes with humor our stereotypes and preconceived ideas about new and foreign places. Flabbergast is dedicated to the choreographer's mother, who taught him how to dance the bayón. Club Havana (2000) Choreography by Pedro Ruiz A portrait of the glamorous Havana of the 1950s during the heyday of Cuban music, dance and nightlife. The intoxicating rhythms of the conga, rumba, mambo, and cha cha are brought to life by choreographer Pedro Ruiz, a native of Cuba, in this re-imagined nightclub filled with the exhilarating sounds, colors and ambience of that golden era. Asuka (2011) Choreography by Eduardo Vilaro Asuka is a celebration of the music of Celia Cruz through the lens of the Latino experience. Cruz, renowned as the "Queen of Salsa," captured the heart of Latinos the world over and became a symbol of perseverance for many. Through rich imagery and humor, Eduardo Vilaro explores the struggles of departure from one’s homeland and the exuberance of success experienced by a community. About Ballet Hispánico: America’s premier Latino dance organization for more than 45 years, Ballet Hispánico brings communities together to celebrate and explore Latino cultures and the shared human experience through dance. Founded by National Medal of Arts recipient Tina Ramirez, Ballet Hispánico has been led since 2009 by Artistic Director & CEO Eduardo Vilaro, who has infused the organization’s legacy with a bold and eclectic brand of contemporary dance that reflects America’s changing cultural landscape. Through performances of its internationally-acclaimed Company, innovative dance training programs, and community education activities that inspire individuals of all ages and backgrounds, Ballet Hispánico brings the joy of dance and Hispanic culture to the world. This event is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs and Cultural Immigrant Initiative in partnership with the City Council. The theatre at United Palace is wheelchair accessible.
