BalaSole Dance Company is proud to present this winter "VOCES" (Italian for Voices). In this concert, Executive & Artistic Director Roberto Villanueva and 9 dance artists will present new solos inspired by various themes, including a solo from a tap artist mentored by the late and world renowned Gregory Hines.

This multi-genre 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, Sokolow Theatre/Dance Ensemble, Philadanco 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, Troy Barnes, Nicole Calabrese, Jessica Cipriano, Sarah Ewing, Aaron Gregory, Morgana Rose Mellett, Andrew Nemr, Emily Pacilio, 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. For more information on BalaSole Dance Company, visit www.balasoledance.org.
