Adrienne Carter Q&A

So much is going on at MCB these days! The final Open Barre of the season is this weekend, Romeo and Juliet closes next weekend at Broward Center, and the Company is rehearsing for the Paris tour!

In all this excitement, something big is happening to a young dancer. Adrienne Carter, a member of the corps de ballet, will be dancing an major role during this weekend’s Open Barre. We caught up with Adrienne for a quick Q&A before she ran off to rehearsal!

MCB: You’re dancing the role of ‘Choleric’ in George Balanchine’s The Four Temperaments this weekend during Open Barre — your first major role with the company! How do you feel?

Adrienne: I am so excited and honored to be given the opportunity!

MCB: What have you found to be the most enjoyable?

Adrienne: This part has always been one of my favorites. Just the fact that I have been given the chance to dance it is enjoyable!

MCB: You will be dancing this role in our intimate studio theater. Does that offer you more or less comfort than if you were dancing on a main stage?

Adrienne: I wouldn’t say it offers more or less comfort, but it is different than dancing in a bigger theater. Even though it is a smaller audience, they are a lot closer and much more visible than usual.

MCB: What do you hope to gain from this experience?

Adrienne: I hope that the experience of dancing this role, especially in the small studio theater, helps me grow as a dancer and develop more maturity on stage.
