International Stars Dazzle Local Community

In a breathtaking exhibition of classical dance, the International Young Ballet Medalists recently performed at North Campus. This beloved performance series, which is quickly becoming an annual MDC tradition, is a component of the renowned International Ballet Festival of Miami, now in its 18th year.

Featuring nearly 25 young medal winners of international ballet competitions, the performances are organized in collaboration with the Youth America Grand Prix and made possible through a longstanding partnership between MDC and the Miami Hispanic Ballet.

Each year the International Ballet Festival of Miami brings together stars from some of the world’s most prestigious dance companies for a series of performances throughout Miami-Dade County. The two-week festival also includes workshops, a dance film series, an art exhibition and master classes.

MDC, which has served as a cultural beacon for the region throughout its 53-year history, is among the top venues hosting these talented dancers.

“Each year these performances are a golden opportunity for the community to appreciate international emerging talent in ballet,” said North Campus Interim President Malou C. Harrison. “With its newly renovated Arts Complex, North Campus is proud to collaborate in promoting the arts with this presentation during the International Ballet Festival of Miami.”
