BalaSole Dance Company is proud to present this fall "VOCES" (Italian for Voices). In this concert, Executive & Artistic Director Roberto Villanueva and 9 dance artists will present new solos inspired by various themes ranging from egocentrism, the surrender of one's inner soldier, the restraint from emotional turmoil, idiosyncrasies, to the destruction of the planet.BalaSole Dance Company has provided visibility to 82 underrepresented artists since its world premiere in August 2010. 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, backgrounds, and artistic expressions. 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 to provide an arena for overlooked or marginalized dance artists. He has been hailed by The New York Times for his technical virtuosity and compelling personality.This concert will feature Lauren Alpert, Elijah Avraham, Nicole Calabrese, Caitlyn Casson, Sarah Ewing, Aaron Gregory, Morgana Rose Mellett, Emily Pacilio, Gina Pero and Roberto Villanueva. Emerging artist Kyla Healey will also perform with the company.BalaSole Dance Company is the resident dance company of the College of Mount Saint Vincent.
