  The Detroit Opera House to host 'Ballet Hispanico', the premier Latino dance company

DETROIT - Recognized as one of the nation’s leading Latino dance organizations, Ballet Hispánico brings an all-Latina choreographer program with works by Michelle Manzanales, Tania Pérez-Salas and Annabelle Lopez Ochoa. The program will explore iconic Mexican symbols, the circularity of the human condition and the hallmark passion of flamenco dance.

Ballet Hispánico brings individuals and communities together to celebrate and explore Latino cultures through dance. Whether dancing on stage, in school, or in the street, Ballet Hispánico creates a space where few institutions are breaking ground.



The Company is a group of 15 highly trained professionals who perform the works of Latino choreographers for audiences around the world. Our repertory explores the diversity of Latino cultures and brings innovative ways of experiencing and sharing a cultural dialogue. Representing a multitude of nationalities, our artists reflect the ever-changing face of our nation.

The organization’s founder, National Medal of Arts recipient Tina Ramirez, sought to give voice to the Hispanic experience and break through stereotypes. Today Ballet Hispánico is led by Eduardo Vilaro, an acclaimed choreographer and former member of the Company, whose vision of social equity, cultural identity and quality arts education for all, drives its programs.

Ballet Hispánico, a role model in and for the Latino community, is inspiring creativity and social awareness in our neighborhoods and across the country by providing access to arts education.

The program runs October 28-29 at the Detroit Opera House, 1526 Broadway St., Detroit. Tickets for Ballet Hispanico range from $29-$89. Tickets may be purchased online at our website, by calling (313) 237-7464 or in person at the Detroit Opera House (1526 Broadway, Detroit).
