Have you seen the Miami City Ballet Instagram lately? If so, you’ve probably noticed that the feed has taken a break from featuring gorgeous performance shots in favor of something a little bit more intimate. MCB dancers Rebecca King and Julian Duque have teamed up to create portraits of dozens of company members, from every rank, in an effort to give followers and fans a personal introduction to the company.

MCB is proudly international, and many fans follow the dancers on social media from around the world—they can only make digital connections when performances are held so far away. Projects like this one become a lovely exercise in positive community building and give the dancers a way to celebrate each other through their non-dance talents, be it marketing, photography or writing.
