As an extension of the company’s Community Arts Partnership program, Texas Performing Arts will present a performance for students at an Austin area school on the morning of Friday, Oct. 29. Ballet Hispánico’s Performances for Young People take audiences on a guided journey through Latinx dance and culture. This interactive, fun-filled exploration will feature excerpts of the Ballet Hispánico repertoire narrated by their artistic leadership. Music, cultural connections, choreography insights, and history come together to deepen the student’s experience of dance. Students are exposed to world-class choreographers and cultural contexts while learning about Latinx icons such as Celia Cruz and Tito Puente. This special event will provide elementary students the opportunity to interact with Ballet Hispánico’s teaching artists and educators through a live dance session and a Q&A.
