Valéncia Arts Center | 1164 W. Howard (10th) St.
This workshop is ideal for non-profit organization staff and board members, business professionals, and community leaders.
Through the exploration of choreographic principles, movement invention and process development, this workshop is designed to help participants explore how their creative capacity can unleash new perspectives and practices in their work and for their fields. Participants will be led through exercises including Laban principles of movement that aid in recovering the carefree creativity of childhood and that utilize the artistic process as a catalyst for energizing their daily lives. Led by Ballet Hispánico Artistic Director and CEO Eduardo Vilaro, the workshop invites all participants to become dancemakers. Participants are asked to bring a notebook and pen, and wear moveable clothing.
Mr. Vilaro has infused Ballet Hispánico’s legacy with a bold and eclectic brand of contemporary dance that reflects America’s changing cultural landscape. Born in Cuba and raised in New York from the age of six, he is a frequent speaker on the merits of cultural diversity and dance education. In 2001, he was a recipient of a Ruth Page Award for choreography, and in 2003, he was honored for his choreographic work at Panama’s II International Festival of Ballet. Mr. Vilaro was also inducted into the Bronx Walk of Fame in 2016 and was awarded HOMBRE Magazine’s 2017 Arts & Culture Trailblazer of the Year.
