Ballet Nepantla presents a synergistic celebration with its production of “Valentina,” a historical ballet that celebrates the strength and resilience of women during Revolutionary Mexico.
“What New York City Ballet’s George Balanchine did with the folkloric dances of his native Russia, Ballet Nepantla is doing with the folkloric dances of Mexico.” (New York Latin Culture Magazine, February 2019) The way dancers show emotion in hand stretches and foot movements make the traditional “zapateado” look more modern. ” It can serve as an example to encourage other Latino children to fight to achieve their dreams. “
-Estefanía Hernández, El Diario NYC (September 2017)
“Valentina” explores the in-between-ness of cultures within the realm of dance, harmonizing traditional Mexican Folklorico with contemporary and classic ballet.
