Miami City Ballet dancers in Serenade. Choreography by George Balanchine © The George Balanchine Trust

Miami City Ballet, which performs in four home counties in South Florida – Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach and Collier – made its debut at N ew York’s Lincoln Center in April. Presented by the Joyce Theater Foundation, the highly anticipated engagement marked the return of former N ew York City Ballet principal dancer Lourdes Lopez to Lincoln Center – now in the role of Miami City Ballet artistic director. Following a gala performance of Serenade, the first ballet George Balanchine created in America, and the exciting and intricate 2012 work Symphonic Dances by American Ballet Theatre resident choreographer Alexei Ratmansky, the engagement included two programs celebrating the work of contemporary ballet choreographers with strong connections to Miami City Ballet, including N ew York premieres of commissioned works by Justin Peck and Liam Scarlett.
