About the Event
Celebrated for its vibrant athleticism, humor, theatricality, and commitment to collaboration, Dance Heginbotham performs a program of repertory favorites, featuring live music by composers Luigi Boccherini, Ernst von Dohnáni, Niccolò Paganini, and Heitor Villa-Lobos. With the full range of the dancers’ virtuosity on display, the evening’s works are inspired by an array of styles, from ballet to flamenco and classical music to Spanish guitar, offering the extraordinary opportunity to experience the thrill of music and dance live on stage.
“Audiences have a chance to enter into Heginbotham’s entertaining universe, and they shouldn’t miss it.” — The New Yorker
