Arts4Youth: Ballet Hispanico
February 5, 2016 · Zellerbach Theatre ·
With a medley of classical and contemporary movement, Ballet Hispanicos choreography is infused with the passion and unique energy of the Latin flamenco and salsa dances. The dances are accompanied by voiced narrations of social movements (e.g. the Hispanic Civil Rights Movement in New York), celebrating the hybridization of Latin and American cultures while also defining their history in both English and Spanish.
Curriculum Connections: Elements and principles of dance; Critical and aesthetic response to dance; World history; U.S. history
- Friday, February 5 @ 10:30 AM
