As we bring our calendar to a close, I marvel at what our dancers have done this year and at their tenacity, courage, and strength. Beginning 2018 with the Jerome Robbins Centennial and continuing on with a world premiere of Brian Brooks’ One Line Dawn, the dancers did not have much respite with a final program of Apollo before their touring began. In six months, our dancers have traveled to six different cities to perform: Charleston, Paris, Naples, New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles. And all of this amidst their already-demanding repertoires in our home theaters in Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and West Palm Beach. In the midst of 22 Nutcrackers now, I can only imagine the extent of their exhaustion. I am filled with pride and honor in knowing that I support great artists who have done so much with their art form. Thank you, dancers, for all you do. Bravo, merde, and best of luck with the final Nutcrackers. You are the center of this great company.

What an amazing collaboration between @miamicityballet and @arshtcenter, @jade_matarazzo, and @kobrastreetart to bring this gorgeous mural to life. Pictured here is our pre-professional dancer, @itztheballerina, who comes to us from Brazil. This mural was the dream of one of our late donors, Miguel Perrotti, who funded one of our Brazilian students every year. What a gorgeous piece by @kobrastreetart, also a Brazilian native. Make sure to stop by the @arshtcenter to see it for yourself! #streetart #mural #ballet #ballerina #miami #miamicityballet #arshtcenter #colors #brazil

A tremendous run of Concerto Barrocco, Brahms/Handel, and our electrifying One Line Drawn by @brianbrooks_ . This last piece would not have been possible had it not been for the underwriting by Jay Franke and David Harrow, our wonderful collaboration with @harristheaterchicago, and the leadership from their exceptional CEO, @barretto74. And what a treat to perform on the Harris Theater’s actual 15th birthday! 🎂 Bravo to our dancers, all the support staff, and to the audiences who filled the Harris Theater on both nights of our performances!

Had a spectacular Improv I class with @michilove3 at @justthefunny, and our final performance was last week. This was my first time ever doing imrov, and the prompt from the audience was that we were in a ski lodge in Greece. Yah: a bit random. But we had to go with it. I hope you enjoy this clip - my first seconds of improv!

So excited to be a part of @miamicityballet ‘s tour in Chicago at the @harristheaterchicago . Was touched to hear from @barretto74 that Miami City Ballet will perform on the very day of the 15th anniversary tomorrow: a tremendous honor and privilege. Thank you @harristheaterchicago and @barretto74 for choosing us and for welcoming our Trustees, dancers, and staff with such warmth and kindness!
