After a relaxing, long weekend, we are back in performance mode as we prepare for the opening of Program II: See the Music at the Broward Center in Ft. Lauderdale this Friday. Our Miami debut had audiences and critics raving about the performance. The New York Times wrote, “The evening’s greatest pleasure was the most familiar. Dancing Balanchine’s Concerto Barocco, the Miami dancers showed the company’s exceptional way of revealing the three-dimensionality of dance, contrasting open and closed positions with marvelous boldness.” We can’t wait to see our Broward audience’s reaction this weekend.
We are also excited to have one of our newest dancers Damian Zamorano take over our Instagram feed this week for the first time! Follow him — #DamianMCBPhotos.
If you are heading to the performance this weekend, lookout for Damian onstage in Symphonic Dances as well! Here, Damian shares why he is excited to perform this work:
I’m excited to perform Symphonic Dances because it is a ballet that requires a lot of energy. Also, I used to dance a lot of classics before and now this is something different than what I used to do, so it requires different movement. I think it’s going to help me a lot for future ballets with MCB. – Damian
While this will be Damian’s first time guesting on our feed, he is certainly no novice to Instagram. Check out his personal feed as well – @zamo_photo! Here’s a sample of his work;-)
