I travel worldwide and ballet is my passion. Of the companies in the USA, there is none I enjoy more than Miami City Ballet. Their technique is at the highest level and their winning, appealing style is remarkable. If you are in the greater Miami area anytime between October and May, check to see if they are performing. You will... More

The room is small, so it is more intimate and the seats are very close to the stage. Any time you can see the Miami City Ballet is a treat, but the Open Barre events are even... More

The Arsht Center is a first-class venue and Miami City Ballet gives an excellent performance no matter what the program is. This company generates so much energy and brings a high level of understanding and musicality to every show.Go more than once on your trip!
