Meet the Dancers – Katia Carranza

Katia Carranza – The Best of Both Worlds

Katia Carranza, former principal dancer, is back as a guest artist! She splits her time between Ballet de Monterrey (where her husband, former MCB Principal Luis Serrano, is Artistic Director) and Miami City Ballet. You might have seen her heating up the stage during The Neighborhood Ballroom; now, she’s going to perform Dances at a Gathering and Who Cares?. We sat down with her for a chat on what it’s like to dance in two companies and her history with MCB.

Love Series – Haiyan and Zou

This is such a magical love story! Principal dancer Haiyan Wu and principal soloist Yang Zou (or just Zou, as we call him) crossed paths earlier in life but never met until they were at Miami City Ballet. They recently added the title of “parents” to their resumes after the arrival of their baby boy, Eric William.

More MCB LOVE!
Returning guest artist (and former principal dancer) Katia Carranza and former principal dancer Luis Serrano’s love blossomed out of a friendship created at Miami City Ballet. They are happily married and currently living in Mexico. Luis is a director in Ballet de Monterrey and Katia is a dancer with the company! We are so happy for them and very excited that Katia is back to dance with us once again.
