We are rapidly approaching our final performances of Program II: See the Music at the Kravis Center this weekend. Half-way through the season, we are in the middle of the artistic journey that Lourdes Lopez has planned. We have celebrated a joyous opening with Program I: First Ventures and are now relishing in the music of four distinct ballets that breathe new meaning into Balanchine’s famous words — see the music, hear the dance! Corps de ballet dancer Helen Ruiz will be taking over our Instagram feed to give you a behind-the-scenes look at our dancers preparing in the studio for their performance and onstage at the Kravis Center. Make sure to follow Helen at #HelenMCBphotos to go behind the ballets and see the music on Instagram!
This season I had the opportunity to dance Polyphonia and Concerto Barocco, which were both very musical and challenging. The fun part about dancing Polyphonia was that I got the chance to work with Christopher Wheeldon! Dancing Concerto Barocco makes me realize how lucky I am to be working in a ballet company that performs several Balanchine ballets, giving the corps de ballet amazing opportunities. — Helen
It is the corps that is the star here and as always, Miami City Ballet’s troupe is not only technically precise and unrelievedly energetic but loaded with self-assurance and character.
