As part of Hispanic Heritage month, Fine Arts Programming is bringing award-winning Ballet Hispánico for a campus residency. Their formal performance on October 12 explores identities and choreographies of Spain and Latin America and the United States. This professional ballet troupe also does a great deal of outreach work teaching and promoting dance in New York City. Hispanic Studies is partnering in this event. https://www.csbsju.edu/fine-arts/performances/ballet-hisp%C3%A1nico
