Ballet Hispanico makes its first visit to Miami under the artistic leadership of Eduardo Vilaro to perform at the Ziff Ballet Opera House at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County on June 6-7, 2014. Highlights of the program include the world premiere of "Show.Girl". by Miami-based choreographer Rosie Herrera, live music by the GRAMMY® winning Paquito D'Rivera Ensemble, and acclaimed works by Cuban-American Vilaro and Spanish native Cayetano Soto. The Arsht Center is located at 1300 Biscayne Blvd., Miami, FL. Tickets are $30-90 and are available at 305-949-6722 or www.arshtcenter.org.

Since its inception, Ballet Hispanico's contemporary repertory has reflected the ever-changing diversity of Latino culture, showcased masterfully by some of "the most technically accomplished and musical dancers you'll find in the contemporary sphere" (The Washington Post). The Company's visit to Miami will include arts education offerings for the community, including in-school performances at three Miami-Dade County schools with predominantly Hispanic and African-American student populations: the Hubert O. Sibley Elementary School, Mae M. Walters Elementary School, and St. Phillip's Episcopal School. Ballet Hispanico will also teach a master class at the New World School of the Arts, the alma mater of Company dancers Joshua Winzeler and Johan Rivera Mendez.
