BALLET BOUND: Angel Sanchez, the Venezuelan-born fashion designer, collaborated with Ballet Hispanico to design original costumes for a new choreographic work presented during the company’s New York season at the Joyce Theater. Sanchez created costumes for the world premiere of “El Beso,” a tongue-in-cheek ode to the kiss and its varying manifestations. It was choreographed by Gustavo Ramírez Sansano.
In addition, Sanchez has created the costumes for the Ballet Hispanico’s annual Junior Society benefit, “Dance Into Fashion.” The event takes place at The Jane Ballroom on May 8. Ballet Hispanico dancers will showcase Sanchez’s creations in a presentation choreographed by artistic director Eduardo Vilaro.
