Ballet Hispanico holds a great luxury in their diverse and vibrant company members. Known for a colorful blending of classical and contemporary vocabularies with the grounded and passionate traditions of Latin dance, the company moves to further stretch boundaries with the works presented in their current season. The key to success for the evolving company lies in presenting their dancers as the athletic movers they are without losing the subtlety that draws audiences in. This balance was achieved to various degrees in program A of their current Joyce season.
International perspective keeps us healthy. Last night, in Program 4 of Fall For Dance at New York City Center, all four companies travelled from abroad to perform. The color, energy, and philosophies they brought along with them imbued the Festival with a new flair. If you wanted something different, this was the night to come.
From September 20-25th The Joyce Theater opens its fall season with Israel Galván’s vibrant “Le Edad de Oro” or The Golden Age, a full length solo flamenco performance accompanied by live musicians. In a Joyce lineup that often features full dance companies, Mr. Galván’s work is uniquely captivating, as is his philosophy on dance.
