Ballet Bus is a short documentary by Isaac Mead-Long taking you into the lives of two young boys, Kimani and Kelvin, who were selected to be a part of MCB’s Ballet Bus program, providing fully-subsidized tuition, transportation and support to kids from Miami-Dade County Title I schools.
Subscribers enjoy the best seats at the best price for MCB’s 2017-2018, including a new Nutcracker production, an all-Robbins Centennial Celebration, five company premieres and more.
“Ballet is so hard. It’s hard on your body, and it’s hard on your mind… we’re constantly pushing ourselves.”
For its 30th Anniversary, MCB asked members from every rank of the company to tell their stories; what inspired them to devote their lives to dance.
Last month, our dancers wrapped up another stop on our list of 2014-15 tours. Miami City Ballet opened New York City Center’s internationally acclaimed Fall for Dance festival performing George Balanchine’s Allegro Brillante on September 30. The festival, now in its 12th year, featured twenty works over five programs, and ran through Oct. 11.
The New York Times called this year’s festival, “one of the most memorable in recent Fall for Dance history.” The article also praised Miami City Ballet, specifically mentioning standout performances by principals Patricia Delgado and Renan Cerdeiro.
Internationally acclaimed artist and photographer Jordan Matter’s latest collection of original photography features MCB Dancers on the sands, streets and skylines of Miami.

Ballet Bus provides transportation and fully-subsidized MCB School scholarships to talented young dancers from Miami-Dade County Title I schools, opening new avenues for personal growth and exploration, while eliminating barriers to arts participation for underserved communities.

The Company also performed Twyla Tharp’s Sweet Fields on August 29 at the Jay Pritzker Pavillion in Millennium Park.
