Balasole Dance Company Presents MIXTUS August 13 & 14 at Ailey Citigroup Theater
Roberto Villanueva, Executive & Artistic Director and Founder of BalaSole Dance Company, presents the 6th Year Anniversary and 17th NYC concert season of BalaSole in "MIXTUS," a new program of solos in a broad range of dance styles, music choices and artistic voices, on August 13 & 14, 8PM, at Ailey Citigroup Theater, 405 West 55 Street.
At the August concert, BalaSole will feature: Nika Antuanette, Davonna Batt, Vanessa Calderon, Meagan Cubides, Laurie Deziel, Dajuan Harris, Alexandria Johnson, Alexis Julian, Nuria Martin Fandos, and Roberto Villanueva.
Roberto Villanueva explains: "I created BalaSole because I believed it was time for a multi-ethnic organization that would open its doors to dance artists of all genres, styles, artistic expressions, shapes, sizes, ages, and background." BalaSole, described by Tim Martin (Dance Europe Magazine) as a "hybrid creature"--"part Dance Company and part showcase," is the only Dance Company of its kind in the U.S. with a mission to address the gaps in the field of concert dance.
The company's artists are provided artistic freedom and mentored to find and hone their own voices. Diversity and individuality are the keywords of the organization, which has mentored and given performance opportunities to over 160 dancer/choreographers since 2010. The Company has presented seasons at Baryshnikov Arts Center's Jerome Robbins Theater, Ailey Citigroup Theater, New York Live Arts, and Tribeca Performing Arts Center. BalaSole is the resident company of Mount Saint Vincent College in Riverdale, NY.
MIXTUS will be presented Saturday & Sunday, August 13 & 14 at 8PM at Ailey Citigroup Theater, 405 West 55 Street, NYC. Ticket prices are $25 General Admission, $20 Students/Seniors.
