WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Recognized around the world as the foremost dance interpreter of Hispanic culture in the United States, Ballet Hispanico's innovative repertory fuses ballet, modern and Latin dance forms into a spirited image of contemporary Hispanic-American culture. Conceived by Artistic Director Tina Ramirez, Ballet Hispanico's NightClub is a full-length dance-theater event in three acts: Cada Noche...Tango, choreographed by Graciela Daniele to the powerful music of Astor Piazzolla; Dejame Soñar, choreographed by Alexandre Magno to classic Latin songs by artists such as Tito Puente; and Hoy Como Ayer, choreographed by Sergio Trujillo to a dynamic fusion of music by contemporary DJs. NightClub is three stories of the inevitable passions and powerful rhythms that move us, as told through the intimate language of dance. Emeline Michel is the reigning queen of Haitian song, beloved for combining traditional rhythms with social, political, and inspirational content. A captivating performer, versatile vocalist, accomplished dancer, songwriter and producer, she is a member of a new generation of Haitian musicians who emphasize complex themes, conscious lyrics, and a broad palette of musical styles, including the native Haitian compas, twoubadou and rara along with jazz, rock, bossa nova and samba.
