The International Ballet Festival of Miami has taken a virtual spin for its performance this year. Having begun August 15th, this is the last weekend to enjoy this stunning work of art right from your home. This weekend, September 12 to the 13th, enjoy and become captivated by 3 live performances directly from theatres, featuring 12 guest companies.
If there’s one thing living in a pandemic has made me miss, it’s being able to enjoy art up close and personal. Museums, operas, plays, poetry readings… the list goes on. This pandemic made appreciating art, concerts, music, all that much more difficult. But, if there’s one thing we all learned, it’s how to adapt, even in the midst of a lockdown. And that is exactly what the art world has done!
On Saturday, get swept away by a classical gala, beginning at 8:00pm EST. A stunning performance including famous classical and neo-classical repertoires, the night features Arts Ballet Threatre of Florida, the Cuban Classical Ballet of Miami, and many many more. This evening will include a presentation for Dr. Daniel Lewis, internationally-recognized dance, teacher, choreographer and author, who will receive a Life For Dance Lifetime Achievement Award.
To finish off the festival, on Sunday September 13th at 5:00pm EST enjoy the closing final of the festival. All participating acts will perform a different program, bringing the entirety of the ballet to a close. Make sure to check out this final night which will include all of the participating acts, especially if you were not able to catch the previous ones!
Each performance is a fee of 10$ which allows a 24 hour access.
What better way to enjoy a beautiful September weekend? If you’ve missed art as much as me, this is definitely something worth checking out.
Cozy up on the couch with some warm beverage and enjoy!
