Fun fact about Adrienne: she once said that her dream role was
“Choleric” in The Four Temperaments,
and last summer she performed that very role during MCB’s Paris tour!
Zoe Zien documented a very excited Adrienne backstage at the Théâtre du Châtelet.
Watch her here at the 25 second mark.

Congratulations Jennifer and Carlos!

Congratulations to principal dancers Jennifer Kronenberg and Carlos Guerra!
The two love birds (and dance partners) are expecting their first child in November!

Jennifer and Carlos met and fell in love at Miami City Ballet. Two years ago we sat down with the couple for our Valentine’s Day love series and asked them when we would hear the pitter-patter of little ballet shoes — their answer was one to two years. And here they are in 2012 with a baby on the way! Click here to see their charming Valentine’s Day interview.

Sara Esty in Pointe Magazine

Soloist Sara Esty is featured in the August/September issue of Pointe Magazine!

In an article titled “It Can Happen In An Instant,” Sara discusses being an understudy and how to be ready to perform at a moment’s notice.

“What began as a routine company class a few years ago for Miami City Ballet’s Sara Esty turned into anything but when a principal ballerina landed badly from a tour jeté. Then in the corps de ballet, Esty felt all eyes turn to her as people realized that she – the dancer’s understudy – would now be starring in both Twyla Tharp’s The Golden Section and George Balanchine’s Valse Fantaisie. Opening night was less than 24 hours away. It was a terrifying, and an exhilarating, moment.

Two years later and one glowing New York Times review later, Esty is a soloist.”
