Meet the voices behind MCB Blog and our Facebook Fan Pages: Ailency Martinez, Kris Kramer and Caroline Murray.

You may recognize Kris Kramer from the MCB stage – she was a dancer with the Company for five years. Recently joining the administrative staff as Development Associate, Kris is charged with recruiting new members for MCB’s Upper Room (the Ballet’s young professionals group) and hosting videos for our Web site, YouTube channel and Facebook  Fan Pages (Miami City Ballet Fan Page, MCB School Fan Page). Check out her video intro.:

Caroline Murray is Miami City Ballet’s Marketing Manager.  Although she was never a dancer (okay, so her mother shoved her feet into ballet slippers when she was five, but that was short-lived), she loves dance and the arts in general.  Caroline has been with MCB for more than eight years – she’s family — and she makes it her business to spread the word about MCB.

Ailency Martinez is a Ballet newbie, starting as our Marketing, Social Networking and PR Assistant extraordinaire last month.  She’s always armed with her video camera and iPhone, and is ready to bring you the dish as it happens!
