Great Dance, Great Music, Great Fun
Miami City Ballet opened its 25th Anniversary Season Friday night (October 15) at the Arsht Center in downtown Miami with a very exciting and varied program that showed the technique and strength of this wonderful company we call our own. The very fact that the company exists is due to Artistic Director Edward Villella and founder and continuing supporter, Toby Lerner Ansin. In celebration of her 70th birthday, Ms. Ansin’s family donated money towards the ballet’s scholarship fund through the Ansin Family Foundation. At the top of the show Ms. Ansin and her children were introduced to the audience. Glowing in a red gown, she looked as graceful as a dancer as she took to the stage.
