Meet Alberto Gaspar

Choreographer of 1 in 10^2,685,000

Alberto Gaspar is an OBT’s company dancer and choreographer. He holds an engineering degree in International Business and different diplomas from Tecnológico de Monterrey and Harvard University. His experience as a choreographer began at Saint Louis Ballet, where he created a piece for the Pulitzer Museum that included a live cello piece and several designs from upcoming fashion designers.

He has been involved with two collaborative groups that performed neoclassical and contemporary pieces set to live music in galleries and museums. His show titled Mexicanismo, featuring Yancy Calvo’s art successfully toured two states in the United States. He also created a music video for Lisa Mac and Dreamers, a dance video spotlighting socio-political issues in our country. Alberto has created choreography for Ballet Memphis, including a full-length ballet for the school and three different neoclassical ballets for the company.
