San Antonio: Hiplet Ballerinas

CONTACT: Teresa Vásquez-Romero, (210) 207-8761

San Antonio (Jan. 13, 2022) – The much-anticipated dance troupe, Hiplet Ballerinas, performs at the Carver on Saturday, January 22, 8 PM.  Specifically designed to make ballet accessible to all, Hiplet™ is a fusion between classical pointe technique, Hip-Hop, African, Latin and other urban dance styles to create a never-before-seen type of dance.   Hiplet™ was created by Artistic Director Homer Hans Bryant in the early 90s with the goal of mixing ballet with popular songs familiar to the audience while simultaneously maintaining its classical roots. The artform has since blossomed and performances incorporate music and dance rooted in communities of color.  The company has been featured and collaborated within global companies such as Mercedes Benz, Vogue's Anna Wintour, New York and Paris Fashion Week, W Magazine, Versace, and Old Navy. Featuring 10 dancers, The Chicago Multi-Cultural Dance Center is excited to partner with ECE Touring to bring its touring show to audiences everywhere.
