Welcome to the second season of Still Spinning!
In this episode, choreographer Bennyroyce Royon discusses how he came to dance, his experience performing in the 2015 Broadway production of The King and I, and his new work for Ballet Hispanico, which explores his Filipino-American identity.
Bennyroyce's new work, Homebound/Alaala, will be performed as part of a program designed by Ballet Hispanico's Artistic Director Eduardo Vilaro. The engagement includes a focus on the intersections between Asian and Latinx cultures. You can see this program during Ballet Hispanico's Joyce season, running Mar 26-31.
