Miami City Ballet

  • What a difference a year makes! Last year, South Florida arts venues, theater and dance companies and musical ensembles were still cautiously resuming operations amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

  • Arts venues may be closed or operating at minimal capacity due to the COVID-19 precautions, but that doesn’t mean you have to forego those treasured holiday traditions like “The Nutcracker” and symphony concerts.

  • Last year, when she announced the 2013-14 season, Miami City Ballet Artistic Director Lourdes Lopez promised she would challenge her dancers in ways they had never imagined. Challenging new works have consistently peppered her programs, but this Saturday in Program III: Triple Threat, her company not only danced, but provided audiences with a thrilling theatrical experience that included acting and singing.

  • Dance fans have an exciting season ahead: Miami City Ballet offers exciting world premieres, while the famed Alvin Ailey and Twyla Tharp companies make their perennial winter visits to South Florida. And, the Duncan Theatre at Palm Beach State College in Lake Worth serves up an ambitious modern dance series.

  • We’ve all been warned about the complexities of office romances. When love is in the air, Monday mornings may seem a little brighter, long days can pass just a little more quickly. But the pressure to perform can also stress relationships — literally.

  • “The Nutcracker” is arguably one of the most beloved family holiday traditions. Ballet companies around the world pack theaters (and pad their tight operating budgets) in the weeks leading up to Christmas with productions set to the familiar suite by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky.
