Watch What It Takes to Become a Miami City Ballet Dancer on Teen Vogue’s Strictly Ballet
Season two of the Teen Vogue’s web series documents what it takes to make it into Miami City Ballet
Miami City Ballet has definitely taken center stage this year. Most recently, Teen Vogue sheds the spotlight on the prestigious Miami Beach-based company for its web video series, Strictly Ballet, which follows six students and apprentices as they try to join Miami City Ballet as professional ballet dancers.
Season two contestants come from as close as Miami and Clearwater to as far as Russia, Brazil, and Cuba, and are between the ages of 14 and 21. Amy Astley, EIC of Teen Vogue was once a ballerina herself, and so “she wanted to showcase what it takes to be a dancer and the sacrifices teenagers have to make in order to realize professional careers,” states Miami New Times.
