It is the only dance organization in the U.S. dedicated to bridging the gaps in concert dance. Following successful productions at The Baryshnikov Arts Center's Jerome Robbins Theater, Dance Theater Workshop and Tribeca Performing Arts Center, the company has earned praises from critics for promoting diversity and showcasing talented dance artists of various sizes, shapes, ages, ethnicities, and styles. BalaSole provides dance artists an arena to showcase their artistic voice. Every BalaSole concert features a different roster of dance artists. Past participants include members of the Limón Dance Company, Metropolitan Opera Ballet, Lucinda Childs Dance, Parsons Dance and Michael Mao Dance. Villanueva, rejected earlier in his dance career by dance companies for his small physique, founded BalaSole Dance Company and has been hailed by The New York Times for his technical virtuosity and compelling personality.This concert will feature Emily Aiken, Musashi Alvarez, Ann Sterling Dale, Jenny Efremova, Stephanie Flackman, Sunday Jackson, Ricardo Mateo Rique-Sanchez, Yvanhova Silva, and Roberto Villanueva. Emerging artists Yoandris Baro, Harriet Boateng-Ado and Mari Travis will also perform with the company.BalaSole Dance Company is the resident dance company of the College of Mount Saint Vincent.
