Encuentros


The Encuentros are back! Thank you to all who provided answers to our survey. From your responses we’ve designed a FREE three-part series for ballet teachers across Latin America this season.

The series will develop and expand participant understanding of Miami City Ballet’s methodology, pedagogy and aesthetic. Each session will take place on a Friday morning at 10am. We hope you will join us for some ballet pedagogy with your morning coffee!
