About Ballet Hispánico

Acclaimed as one of America’s Cultural Treasures (Ford Foundation), Ballet Hispánico brings communities together to celebrate and explore Latino cultures through innovative dance performances, transformative dance training, and enduring community engagement experiences.

Founded in 1970 by National Medal of Arts recipient, Tina Ramírez, the organization emerged during the post-Civil Rights Movement on NYC’s Upper West Side, providing a safe haven for primarily Black and Brown Latinx youth seeking artistic sanctuary during the plight of 1970s New York City. With the need for place, both culturally and artistically, families found their way to Ballet Hispánico. With a focus on dance in order to develop artists who work, the training, authenticity of voice, and power of representation, fueled the organization’s roots and trajectory.

With a focus on dance, achievement, and public presence, the organization flourished through the three roots of its mission: its Company, School of Dance, and Community Arts Partnerships. Over the past five decades, by leading with Latinx culture at the forefront of performance, education, and advocacy, BH’s mission is a catalyst of change and possibility for communities throughout our nation. As an organization progressing with the needs of its community, BH serves as a platform for historically omitted and overlooked artists providing capacity, voice, and affirmation.
