Ballet Hispanico, recognized as the preeminent Latino dance institution in the United States, presents a showing of work from the 2012 Instituto Coreografico on June 15, 2012 from 2-3pm at the Ballet Hispanico headquarters' 10th Floor Penthouse at 167 W. 89th Street, NYC. This year's Instituto Coreográfico features choreographers Rosie Herrerra and Abdul Latif with panelists Richard Chen See, Francesca Harper, and Risa Steinberg.

The 2012 Instituto provides both emerging choreographers and dance filmmakers with a professional and supportive environment in which to explore their heritage and develop their craft. Choreographers receive ongoing feedback from a group of notable artistic mentors and advisors, daily archive DVD recordings of the rehearsals, an edited film of the resulting work, an academic advisor, and a showing of their work. Should an artistically appropriate work emerge from this process, it could enter Ballet Hispanico's permanent repertory. Filmmakers will be paired with a choreographer and will be mentored by filmmaker Gerrit Vooren, founder of reels4artists, a company that often captures videos of the Ballet Hispanico Company.

"Our Instituto Coreográfico works to foster new voices and explore the diversity of Latino culture. This year's gifted choreographers bring unique perspectives to the institute and will collaborate with our talented dancers to discover new paths of investigation for their work," said Eduardo Vilaro, Artistic Director of Ballet Hispanico.

In 2010, Ballet Hispanico launched a new choreography institute created for Latino artists to explore culturally specific work in a nurturing, learning laboratory. The inaugural Instituto Coreográfíco took place in September 2010 when Cuban-American choreographer Maray Ramis Gutierrez created a new work, Puntos Suspensivos, on company members which then premiered two months later during Ballet Hispanico's annual New York season at The Joyce Theater. The Instituto continued in January 2011 when former Ballet Hispanico dancer Nicholas Villeneuve created a new work on his fellow company members. The most recent installment of the program in June 2011 featured Cuban choreographer George Céspedes, a dancer with Danza Contemporánea de Cuba, who is among the few Cuban nationals to create a work for a major U.S. dance company.

Rosie Herrera is a graduate of Miami's New World School of the Arts with a BFA in Dance Performance. She has been commissioned by The Miami Light Project, in association with the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing and the American Dance Festival. As a rehearsal director, co-choreographer and performer, Rosie was in residency at the Chat Noir Cabaret at Dream Night Club in Miami Beach with the interdisciplinary performance ensemble Circ X. In 2009 she was in residency at the American Dance Festival recreating her work "Various Stages of Drowning: A Cabaret" on ADF dancers. Subsequently her company was presented at the festival in 2010 and 2011 where she premiered the ADF commissioned works: "Pity Party" and "Dining Alone" to sold out audiences. Rosie is a classically trained lyric coloratura soprano and performs with the Performers Music Institute Opera Ensemble as well as choreographs and stages operas independently throughout Miami. She has also collaborated on productions with The South Miami Dade Cultural Arts Center, New World School of the Arts, Zoetic Stage and with theater artist Rudi Goblen as well as filmmakers Adam Reign and Lucas Leyva. Rosie is a 2010 MANCC choreographic fellow and a 2011 Miami Dance Fellow.
