Performances for Young People (PYP)
Ballet Hispanico's Performances for Young People (PYP) are engaging 50-minute productions that lead students on a guided exploration of Latin American and Caribbean dance forms and music.
UPCOMING PYP: Ballet Hispanico at Harlem's World Famous Apollo Theater
Ballet Hispanico, the nation's leading Latino dance company since 1970, returns to the Apollo stage to delight students with a guided journey through Latin American dance forms and music. Highlights of the program include Umbral, an imaginative interpretation of the beloved Mexican celebration Día de los Muertos; Quinceañera, a contemporary work that commemorates a 15-year-old girl's passage to womanhood; and Tango Vitrola, set to 1920s milonga recordings. The performance will also feature the participation of BHdos, Ballet Hispanico's second company for young pre-professional dancers.
