Performances for Young People
Performances for Young People (PYP) take audiences on a guided journey through Latin American dance and music. This interactive, fun-filled exploration features excerpts of the Ballet Hispánico repertory and is narrated by one of our master teaching artists and performed by our second company BHdos, or our main company. Latin music and cultural connections, choreography insights, and dance history come together to deepen the audience’s experience of dance. Students are exposed to world-class choreographers and the cultures of Spain, Cuba, Puerto Rico, and the Americas, while learning about Latino icons such as Celia Cruz and Tito Puente.
Participating groups and schools are provided with study guides as reference to inspire students to engage with the historical, cultural, and artistic elements of Ballet Hispánico's repertory. View an example of these materials here.
