Jennifer Lauren & Rainer Krenstetter Take Center Stage in Austria

We can’t believe it’s already been a month since the end of our 2014-2015 season. Since then, our dancers have been enjoying their first 6-week layoff before returning to the studios for rehearsals in June.

This week, we caught up with soloist Jennifer Lauren, who shared all about her recent European adventure with fellow dancer, principal Rainer Krenstetter.

Jennifer writes —

I was thrilled when Rainer asked if I was available to dance at The 6th International Dance Gala in Graz, Austria. We were chosen to dance George Balanchine’s Stars and Stripes, which is one of my favorite pieces to perform.

Leigh-Ann Esty in The Big Apple

This week on the MCB Summer 2015 blog series, we caught up with corps de ballet member Leigh-Ann Esty, who is spending some time in NYC this month.

Leigh-Ann writes —

This spring I was asked to participate in a choreographic workshop with some of my coworkers. Ariel Rose, a fellow MCB corps de ballet member, asked me in March if I would be willing to spend a month in New York City working with him. He received a choreography fellowship through the Center for Ballet and the Arts at NYU. Who wouldn’t want to hang out in the Big Apple for a month?!

Remembering Kirk Landon

Miami City Ballet is deeply saddened by the passing of our beloved friend, esteemed Board Member, and tremendous supporter R. Kirk Landon.

His leadership and tenacity, his fearless spirit, and above all, his remarkable philanthropy have shaped the course of Miami City Ballet for decades. Kirk believed in the transformative power of the performing arts, and his love for Miami City Ballet was inspiring to us all.

South Florida has lost a pillar of our community, and we have lost a most cherished member of the MCB Family. We honor Kirk, we salute him, and we will always remember him.

MCB Takes Canada

Rave reviews from critics and audiences alike!

This winter our dancers left behind the warm South Florida weather and headed to Canada for two weekends of special performances, first in Vancouver, British Columbia, and then in Ottawa, Ontario. This marks the Company’s first international tour since 2011.

In Vancouver, hosted by Ballet BC, the Company presented a full program of masterworks by George Balanchine at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre with performances of Serenade, Symphony in Three Movements and Ballo della Regina. The performances, which received high praise, marked the Company’s debut in Vancouver.
