Strong Family Dance Assembly Welcomes BHdos of Ballet Hispánico

As part of the annual Strong Family Dance Assembly, RCDS welcomed BHdos, the second company of Ballet Hispánico, for a series of on-campus performances and workshops. With engaging and interactive productions, BHdos leads audiences through exciting explorations of dance and cultural diversity influenced by the Latinx diaspora, amplifying Ballet Hispánico's mission of bringing communities together to celebrate and explore Latino cultures through innovative dance productions, transformative dance training, and community engagement. The company's performance at Rye Country Day captivated students, faculty, and staff in all three divisions with its celebration of Brazil's Carnival through choreography and music. Cedar Street Dancers also had the opportunity to take a master class with BHdos rehearsal director Rodney Hamilton and the company members in which they learned a segment of the Brazilian Carnival piece "Battucada." The class was exciting and inspiring for our students. We are immensely grateful to Roger, Nancy, and Sarah Strong for their continued support of dance education at RCDS and for bringing this meaningful experience to the community.
