Corps dancer Jovani Furlan is back on Instagram! From dancers in glamorous ball gowns to paper dolls and tin soldiers, he will be capturing all of the action in Program III: The Masters.
Fun Fact about Jovani: Program III: The Masters happens to be on of Jovani’s favorite programs — he loves performing Alexei Ratmansky’s Symphonic Dances and thinks it contrasts greatly with George Balanchine’s La Valse.
Follow Jovani on Instagram #JovaniMCBPhotos or LIVE at the Broward Center this weekend when he performs during Program III: The Masters.

Corps dancer Jovani Furlan is back to take over our Instagram feed as this week’s guest photographer! Jovani will be snapping shots of the dancers hard at work rehearsing for Program III: The Masters and Program IV: Broadway and Ballet.
Jovani shared a new fun fact (along with some pictures) for his second stint at Instagram!
Fun Fact: In 2007, Jovani performed the pas de trois of the Russian version of The Nutcracker for Mikhail Baryshnikov at his ballet school in Brazil. Baryshnikov LOVED the performance !

Last season, Jovani was able to reunite with Baryshnikov, when he made a surprise visit to our studios during rehearsals of
Alexei Ratmansky’s Symphonic Dances.

Fun fact about Jovani: when he was younger, he wasn’t the biggest fan of school,
so he decided to join a different kind of school — ballet school!
Ballet provided some variety for Jovani and soon he learned to enjoy both!
The 2011-2012 season opens with Program I on October 21 at Adrienne Arsht Center! With a world premiere by Liam Scarlett, two full-length classics, and the return of Opus One Orchestra, this season promises to be one of the best in MCB history! We’d like to congratulate our newly promoted dancers and welcome new faces to the troupe for this very exciting season.
