BALLET CONCERTO: South Florida Classical Ballet Pioneers Retire After 55 Years
by Isabel D. Almaraz - Sep 15, 2016

Ballet Concerto School in Miami, FL will close after 55 years. One of the oldest and arguably one of the highest quality classical ballet schools in the region, Ballet Concerto opened its doors in 1961 and subsequently Miami's first professional ballet company, Ballet Concerto Company, in 1964. The school produced some recognizable names, most notably Fernando Bujones, and the company set a precedent for classical ballet in the area by bringing the most extraordinary ballet artists of the twentieth century to South Florida for the first time. Guest artists included Rudolph Nureyev, Carla Fracci, Cynthia Gregory, Natalia Makarova, Ivan Nagy, Gelsey Kirkland, and Alexander Gudonov to name a few. Ballet Concerto will be remembered as a key player in the development of arts and culture in South Florida, especially within the Hispanic community. Artistic Directors Sonia Diaz and Martha del Pino, who defected from Ballet Nacional de Cuba, where they danced alongside Alicia Alonso and under the direction of Fernando Alonso, implemented and maintained the rigorous classical curriculum that Cuban ballet has since become known for. There is no question of the void left by the closing of this Miami establishment, mostly in the heart of the three generations, and thousands of students who studied and danced at Ballet Concerto and in the memory of those who witnessed the evolution of the cultural arts in Miami between the 1960's and 1980's, when the school and company were at its peak.

BWW Blog: De'Ja Williams - Introducing Me
by Guest Blogger: De'Ja Williams - Jul 6, 2016

I think it's only fair, dear reader, that I tell you a little bit of myself. If you are to continue indulging in this relationship we are forming it would only suffice that you know a bit about me and where I come from. I am a rising junior attending the private prep school MICDS in Saint Louis Missouri. I am an actress, poet, and story teller. I have always known I was an artist. Details often jump up at me and claim my attention. Sometimes they were sights or smells--vivid and demanding to be translated into art. The world has always been a bright and lively place to me. Through the Years my mediums have danced about: from singing to dancing, painting to acting, drawing to modeling; however, the stage has always been my true home.   (more...)
