Ballet Hispanico at Fall Festival

Bryant Park holds a number of performances, large and small, throughout the year. Bryant Park Fall Festival presented by Bank of America gave us the opportunity to see large scale dance, opera, and music performances on an almost 360 degree stage. This doesn't leave much of a backstage for performers, but gives the public an incredible opportunity to see a performance from all angles, and glimpse a performer stretching their limbs or vocal chords. Ballet Hispanico, the nation's premier Latino dance company, took the stage on Sunday night. Below you can see a bit of their performance, and a post-show interview with Company dancer, Donald Borror.

Fall Festival has two remaining performances, which both happen to be modern dance. Tonight, Elisa Monte Dance will take the stage, and tomorrow RIOULT will round out the Festival. Make an evening of it with snacks from 'wichcraft and City Winery, and chances to win at the Info Kiosk. Both performances begin at 6pm.
