The Jamaica Dance Festival – Week 1 of 4

June 1 @ 7:00 pm

Free

This year’s Jamaica Dance Festival spans four Saturday June evenings – June 1st, June 8th, June 15th and June 22nd.

Night 1 of 4 will feature:
American Bolero Dance Company
Tango For All
BHdos: The Second Company of Ballet Hispanico

Founded in 1996 by Artistic Director Gabriela Granados, the American Bolero Dance Company explores the rhythmic intricacies and song literature of Flamenco, the refined and stylized repertory of Clásico Español and the traditions of Escuela Bolera, with the flair and electricity of Broadway productions.

Tango for All performances are a dynamic celebration of the multicultural roots of tango – and an expression of contemporary sensibilities.

In 2012, Artistic Director & CEO Eduardo Vilaro launched the BHdos company, a new vehicle for connecting talented pre-professional students to the professional dance world and for nurturing new links between artists and local communities. BHdos serves the ever-growing diverse communities in our city and is a catalyst for cultural dialogue.
