Now in its 17th year, the International Ballet Festival of Miami brings together stars from the world’s most prestigious dance companies in a series of performances throughout Miami-Dade County. The two-week festival featured ballet performances, workshops, a dance film series, an art exhibition and several master classes. Miami Dade College, which has served as a cultural beacon throughout its 50-year history, is proud to present this acclaimed festival.
“The annual International Young Medalist Performance is a golden opportunity for the Miami community to appreciate international up-and-coming talent,” said North Campus President Dr. José A. Vicente. “North Campus, with its newly renovated state-of-the-art Complex of the Arts, is proud to promote the arts through this presentation during the International Ballet Festival of Miami.”
