This week, corps dancer Lexie Overhold gets behind the lens of our Instagram feed, snapping shots of the company preparing for another round of Nutcracker performances at the Arsht Center. While Lexie will be capturing the Nutcracker magic during the weekend, she will also be documenting all of the action occurring at our studios in Miami Beach. The company is working hard in rehearsals for Program II: Tradition and Innovation, which opens at the Arsht Center in the New Year! Look out for some fabulous photos of dancers in Liam Scarlett’s new world premiere, Balanchine’s Duo Concertant and Divertimento No. 15, and the popular Don Quixote Pas de Deux!
