Ballet Hisp nico will celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with the anticipated return of its A La Calle Block Party. This year's event will be streamed for free for audiences nationwide to enjoy the festivities. More programming will be announced in the coming weeks.  As it has done in previous years, Ballet Hisp nico will take over West 89th Street (between Amsterdam and Columbus Avenues), its home for 50 years. The event will include performances by the internationally renowned Company and prestigious School of Dance and Community Arts Partnerships students. The Company will perform two numbers, a solo from Arabesque by Vicente Nebrada and an excerpt from 18+1 by Gustavo Ram rez Sansano. Students from the School of Dance will also take to the stage and perform select numbers, including Flamenco Work and Ritmo y Ruido, from the 50th Anniversary Gala, and Salsa Work by Milteri Tucker. The newly formed Pa'lante Scholars will perform an excerpt from Bury Me Standing.  New to the block party this year and as part of its commitment to champion and amplify voices within its community, Ballet Hisp nico will be inviting select Latinx dance companies from around New York City to perform as guest artists, including Bombazo Dance Company and Calpulli Mexican Dance Company as well as others, to be announced in the near future. Additionally, The School of Dance will offer free dance classes at the event. The Ballet Hisp nico 2021 A La Calle Block Party is made possible by Con Edison of New York and Popular Bank. Major support is provided by Mutual of America.
