Luna Negra Dance Theatre
by Elizabeth McPherson - February 3, 2008, The New Victory Theatre, NYC
The Chicago-based Luna Negra Dance Theatre produces and presents works by Latino choreographers. The company of thirteen dancers is directed by Eduardo Vilaro, former principal dancer with Ballet Hispanico of New York. Though The New Victory Theatre is known for its programming for young people, this performance was not tailored to that audience, meaning that the dances were accessible to the young viewer, but appeared to be choreographed for a general audience.

By Dean Speer and Francis Timlin - August 15, 2005, Joffrey Ballet Headquarters, Chicago
"I grew up in Sandy, Utah – a suburb of Salt Lake City -- and began ballet with a good teacher, Linda Fenton, when I was ten years old. I went to Pacific Northwest Ballet during summers; I spent one summer at Houston Ballet, and trained at the Ballet West Academy before spending my final year of training at PNB in the Professional Division. I started dancing with the Joffrey Ballet in July of 2001."

Texas Turns to Chicago: The Joffrey Ballet's Mauro Villanueva
By Dean Speer and Francis Timlin - August 15, 2005, Joffrey Ballet Headquarters, Chicago
"I’m from San Antonio, Texas. I saw Houston Ballet do “Nutcracker” when I was six and decided I wanted to try it myself. I studied at a small competition school and later, when I was ten, started more serious ballet training with Buddy and Susan Treviño. They are the directors of the Joffrey San Antonio Summer Intensive. I did this for six years".
