Miami City Ballet (MCB), founded in 1985, is universally admired as one of the world’s preeminent interpreters of the choreography of George Balanchine. Its repertory of more than 100 ballets, was built upon the Balanchine repertory, style, and technique, and then expanded to include beloved classical works of importance and exciting new choreography by contemporary and ground-breaking artists. MCB is led by former NYC prima ballerina and television personality, Lourdes Lopez. Now in her seventh year as Artistic Director, Ms. Lopez is bringing a new level of artistry to the company, adding classical repertoire, and commissioning new works. MCB presents a season of four repertory programs and a newly designed Nutcracker at the Adrienne Arsht Performing Arts Center in Miami, Broward Center for the Performing Arts, and Kravis Center for the Performing Arts, and is presented annually at Artis-Naples. The annual operating budget is approximately $20 million, half of which is earned through ticket sales, touring fees, and school tuition.
For more than 30 years, Miami City Ballet has been presenting and creating works that make all of us think, feel and react in ways that no other art form can. Our mission is to bring about positive change through our understanding of dance and its transformative power – its unique ability to cross all borders and lift the human spirit. If you have this same spirit about positive change, the performing arts and our mission, we invite you to consider one of the job opportunities listed below.
