  6. "They were members of Miami City Ballet, in their first flash mob performance. Their surprise show, an excerpt from Paul Taylor’s Piazzolla Caldera, aimed to promote the ballet’s season-opening program at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts this weekend. MCB dancers Rebecca King and Callie Manning brought the idea to new artistic director Lourdes Lopez, who enthusiastically signed on last week. The company scrambled to pull together the event, which became part of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation’s Random Acts of Culture program. Dressed in denim shorts, T-shirts and tank tops, sneakers and sandals, the dancers seemed to enjoy themselves and the sensation they created. They mingled with the crowd beforehand, and afterward rushed out among the startled onlookers, handing out cards offering half-price discounts to the Arsht Center performances." http://www.miamiherald.com/2012/10/16/3052692/miami-city-ballet-wows-wynwood.html#storyBody Read more here: http://www.miamiherald.com/2012/10/16/3052692/miami-city-ballet-wows-wynwood.html#storylink=cpy

  15. Bart Thanks for the clarification, I am using google translate to try and read some of the posts. From twitter is sounds like LaValse went well tonight they are ending with Upper Room. I sure am looking forward to hearing reactions to this evening.
  16. From a Paris Review of last night's opening "But the 100% Miami has another charm: that of a journey through time full of freshness and youth. It is probably with performers like these that Balanchine created his plays and conquered the planet. Photos and movies are dreams. To put it in his eyes, it will run July 11 at the Cinémathèque de la danse organizing in Paris-Bercy (from 12:00 to 0:00), a marathon of new films in France, Balanchine and Robbins."
