“If the evening’s three pieces share anything in common, it is the intense difficulty and pin-point precision required of the dancers. And they really deliver. ”
“We will show that in times of massive upheaval, of insecurity, of darkness, of the unknown, artists and art will rise up to show what courage looks like and what resilience can do.”
We are humbled to be able to give back to our community. MCB’s costume department put their skills and creativity to use making masks for Nicklaus Children’s Hospital.
As part of the effort to keep community safe, Don Quixote has been postponed until October. Dates will be announced soon. We hope you can join us later this year for this spectacular tale full of comedy and romance.

“The opening gala began with “Serenade,” Balanchine’s windswept embodiment of Tchaikovsky’s “Serenade in C Major for String Orchestra,” …Miami City Ballet did the honors impressively, with Simone Messmer being carried off for the elegiac ending of the 4-part suite keenly framed by the center’s intimate space.”
“Miami City Ballet proved that it belongs in the festival. An offshoot of City Ballet, the Miami company understands what Balanchine discovered and taught: how exactitude needn’t sacrifice warmth; how even in Romanticism, rhythmic accuracy allows momentum to build.”
“Without the complex musicality, Balanchine seems wooden, pointless. No surprise, then, that the companies on the first two programmes most steeped in his work were the ones that most illuminated it. “
“The Miami dancers pushed through the air almost hungrily. City Ballet is assertive, stylish, and sharp; the Miamians dance with drive. It’s fascinating to see the two companies side by side, like siblings with different temperaments.”
