Director of Development

Ballet Hispánico - New York, NY
Ballet Hispánico seeks a Director of Development to provide strategic leadership to a development program that enhances and amplifies Ballet Hispánico's culture of philanthropy. As a member of the organization's Senior Leadership Team, the Director will work with the Chief Managing Director, Artistic Director and CEO, Board of Directors, colleagues, and staff across the organization to develop and implement a comprehensive, ambitious, and innovative fundraising plan that expands support for Ballet Hispánico. The Director of Development will serve as a visible ambassador for Ballet Hispánico and play a key role in securing the organization’s continued success and sustainable future through increased philanthropic support.

Ballet Hispánico brings communities together to celebrate and explore Latino cultures through innovative dance productions, transformative dance training, and community engagement. As the largest Latino cultural organization in the United States and one of America’s Cultural Treasures, Ballet Hispánico’s three main programs—the Company, School of Dance, and Community Arts Partnerships—bring together communities to celebrate the ever growing and multifaceted Hispanic diasporas. Ballet Hispánico’s New York City headquarters provide the space and cultural heart for Latinx dance in the United States. It is a space that expands on Ramirez’s original vision by providing the community the ability to train through dedicated scholarship opportunities, exceptional dance training, inclusive cultural dialogues, and exemplary performances. No matter their background or identity, Ballet Hispánico welcomes and serves all, breaking stereotypes and celebrating the beauty and diversity of Hispanic cultures through dance.

"From the moment I stepped inside the Ballet Hispánico world, I knew I had found my home and artistic voice. Ballet Hispánico gave me back my identity as a Latino man after a journey of assimilation that separated me from my culture and set me on a journey to help others find pride and belonging in our world. This is the power of representation. As I look to the future, it is my hope that we expand on major works of art with proper support and funding so that we may tell our stories in the light they were meant to be told." — Eduardo Vilaro, Artistic Director and CEO
