Ballet Hispanico, widely recognized as the nation’s leading Latino dance company, will perform “Sortijas,” or “Rings,” a newly commissioned work by Cayetano Soto, a young Spanish choreographer, at Guild Hall’s John Drew Theater Saturday at 8 p.m. Founded in 1970 by Tina Ramirez, Ballet Hispanico’s mission is to explore, preserve, and celebrate Latino cultures through dance. The company, which has a diverse repertory of more than 100 works by some of the foremost choreographers of the time, has performed for nearly three million people in 11 countries.
“Sortijas” is a duet that celebrates Latino tradition by representing the circular ties of family and friends that link communities together over generations. Prime orchestra tickets are $60, $58 for members. Orchestra and balcony seats are $20, $18 for members. Admission is free for students.
