Tito on Timbales is a tribute to the music of master percussionist Tito Puente. In this ballet, choreographer William Whitener captures the joy and intricacies of social dance through cascading patterns, sensual partnering and the community of celebration.

Tito on Timbales was made possible by a grant from the MetLife Foundation and with public support from the New York State Council on the Arts, a state agency.

Tito on Timbales and Stick on Bongo performed originally by Tito Puente and the Tito Puente Rhythm Section: Jose Madera, Bobby Rodriguez and Johnny Dandy Rodriguez.
