Young Dancemakers Company - a performing ensemble of NYC teens - will perform a free concert of their unique, original choreography based on meaningful personal and social themes. The group dances to both live and recorded music, made in collaboration with professional composers. They will perform their latest works and an excerpt of Ann Reinking's Ritmo y Ruido being set by Ballet Hispánico artists, including Natalia Alonzo, who was part of the Company when Reinking originally set the piece in 1997, continuing the tradition of dance being passed from one generation to the next.

Current company dancers Antonio Cangiano and Omar Rivera along with former company soloist Natalia Alonso comprise the team preparing the Young Dancemakers Company for the performances, setting the piece, and guiding them once on tour. The young company will also participate in the 2021 Guest Repertory Project, which provides coaching and performance advice from experts in the field, including Ballet Hispánico Artistic Director & CEO Eduardo Vilaro.
