Miami City Ballet in The Big Apple
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.
Siobhan Burke, dance writer for The New York Times wrote, “The stunning Ms. Delgado swept through space with a lilting, gracious freedom, and Mr. Cerdeiro with a youthful buoyancy born of ultra long legs.”
Off the stage, Artistic Director Lourdes Lopez and corps de ballet member also participated in a Master Class as part of the festival.
MCB Soloist Jennifer Lauren took to the Company’s Instagram page to share all the behind-the-scenes action, including backstage moments with her fellow company.
