The chill dispersed even before the curtain rose in the excitement shared by frequent ballet-goe..
Dancers are movers and water in nature is almost always moving. The National Water Dance performance brought the two together at the historic Deering Estate on Saturday, April 16, as part of the estate’s Festival of the Arts. At exactly 4:00 p.m. dancers from across the nation used movement to bring awareness to the substance that covers roughly 70 to 75 percent of the world’s surface. Fo..

Like most kids, dancer choreographer Brigette Cormier grew up watching television, and as an adult she still enjoys a show or two. However, in her latest dance work, TV NO, she breaks down the barriers of television entertainment and explores how addictive the medium can be.
Taking place at the intimate RIFT Black Box Theater, the multi-media performance takes the audience through the..

On March 26, FUNDarte, in collaboration with Miami-Dade County Auditorium and Culture Shock Miami, presented Brazil’s Companhia Urbana de Dança’s second annual performance in Miami. The company has achieved acclaim for its blend of capoeira and authentic, no-bravado hip hop performed by dancers - “Brazilian, young and black” -- whose origins are the bleak favelas of urban Brazil.

This week, the Miami Book Fair International aims to pull back that curtain with special presentation of The Making Of “Surya: The Eternal Rhythm” at MDC’s Wolfson Auditorium, which will feature excerpt..
The idea for a month-long celebration of water first came to Tigertail Productions’ Executive Director and founder Mary Luft over a year ago, as the issues of rising sea-levels and climate change have come to the fore. “I started thinking and looking at water in a more general way, and looking at water bounty, water as essential, water as ritual -- but from an artist’s perspective.”
