What are the classical Spanish arts?
Genres such as zarzuela; music by classical composers from Spain and Latin America (historical and contemporary); historic and folkloric Spanish and Latin American dance, as well as theater, painting, and poetry.
In our partnership with the Hispanic Society Museum & Library, our collaborative educational programs feature historical painting and storytelling, combined with dance and music.
Hispanic Culture Arts continues to innovate via new projects that combine popular genres with classical Hispanic arts, to create an interesting curriculum, thus fulfilling our mission to help students make connections between the classical Hispanic arts and everyday life in NYC.
