Updated: Sep 16, 2022

Inspirational founder of Ballet Hispanico Tina Ramirez died at her home in Upper Manhattan.

This Washington Post article tells of her legacy and the important work she did to create a dance company that represented the hispanic people.

“Tina understood that beyond uplifting general audiences, Ballet Hispánico could instill pride in and appreciation of Latinx dance and cultural heritage, empowering all our children for future success.”

LACHSA DANCE enjoyed working with LACHSA alum Paulo Hernandez-Farella on repertoire from BALLET HISPANICO and we are so very grateful to experience the legacy that Tina Ramirez created.
