South Miami-Dade Cultural Arts Center presents Dimensions Dance Theatre of Miami

South Miami Dade-Cultural Arts Center Presents Dimensions Dance Theatre of Miami in a summer production called BALLET OF WO(MEN) on Saturday, July 21 at 8pm

 A pre-performance talk will take place at 6:30pm with guest of honor Edward Villella the founding Artistic Director of Miami City Ballet, Artistic Directors of Dimensions Dance Theatre of Miami Carlos Guerra & Jennifer Kronenberg, resident choreographer Yanis Pikieris, and guest choreographer Leonardo Reale.

 Hailed as “boundless,” “vibrant” and “athletic” by South Florida Classical Review, the dynamic dancers of Dimensions Dance Theatre of Miami are challenging ballet’s status quo in a monumental “His” & “Hers” program featuring ballets by George Balanchine, Yanis Pikieris and Leonardo Reale.

Fresh, innovative, diverse ballet experience

Founded by former Miami City Ballet Principal couple, Carlos Guerra and Jennifer Kronenberg, Dimensions Dance Theatre of Miami debuted to critical acclaim in November 2016 as a brand new, cutting edge ballet company. The troupe continues to garner recognition for their profound energy and electricity, offering audiences a fresh, innovative, and diverse ballet experience. Primarily comprised of local artists, the company, its cultural programming, and its collaborative pursuits are especially unique in their distinct reflection of South Florida.
