Aldeir Monteiro is here to take over our Instagram feed!

Aldeir Monteiro is extremely busy as a Miami City Ballet School Scholarship Apprentice. Yet, between daily ballet classes, rehearsals and performances with BOTH the company and school, he is finding some time to snap shots for our Instagram feed this week.  Aldeir will document his busy balancing-act between the company and school as MCB prepares for performances of Program I: Fire and Ice at the Kravis Center this weekend (Nov. 30-Dec.2).

Fun fact about Aldeir: Before he started to dance, he did artistic gymnastics.
