Miami City Ballet is celebrating its 30th anniversary this coming season, and what better way to kick it off than by announcing promotions and company additions?

If you're a ballet fan, you've probably already noticed the dance films created by fomer Miami City Ballet dancer Ezra Hurwitz.

You probably remember filmmaker and former Miami City Ballet dancer Ezra Hurwitz's mini-documentary In a Day's Work: It trailed New York City Ballet principal Sara Mearns throughout her day, and gave viewers a sense of the mental and physical stamina required of a ballerina at the top of her game.

It's rare for a U.S.-based ballet school to recruit from Latin America, but Miami City Ballet is setting a new precedent. In November, MCB School will conduct its International Master Class Tour, which can function as a MCB summer intensive audition for interested students. The tour will make multiple stops in Brazil, including Salvador, Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo, and Vitoria.

In June, Miami City Ballet partnered up with a new Fort Lauderdale-based magazine called Venice to produce a series of stunning underwater dance photos.

The images feature Miami City Ballet Dancers Emily Bromberg, Leigh-Ann Esty, Lexie Overholt, Ariel Rose and Chase Swatosh. Photographer George Kamper shot the dancers in the safety of a backyard pool, and then digitally combined them with images he took of shipwrecks off the coast of Florida.
