When Pedro Pablo Peña launched the International Ballet Festival of Miami seven years ago, his idea was to showcase Latin dance artists and troupes and to give audiences a taste of some of the pure classical pieces seldom seen in Miami City Ballet's neoclassical, Balanchine-based repertory. more

BY OCTAVIO ROCA

It was love at first sight between the Miami public and the Ballet Nacional Dominicano. The United States debut of Carlos Veitía's troupe had the audience cheering at the Manuel Artime Theater Thursday night and provided the VIII International Ballet Festival of Miami a delicious start.

Posted September 9 2003

Festival displays modest virtues, heavy on the classics

by GUILLERMO PEREZ
the South Florida Sun-Sentinel

Other participants brought fairly gung-ho performances in ho-hum choreography (Brazarte's The Heron from Ballet Nacional Dominicano) or vice-versa (Miami Hispanic Ballet's Motivations). So I May Say, a male duet from New York's Buglisi/Foreman Dance Company, had emotion and fluidity, but all that reaching-out eventually reached exhaustion.

by ERIKA KINETZ for the New York Times

MIAMI BEACH, Sept. 19 - Hispanic dancers have long graced American stages, but their presence, which was once notable, is fast becoming the norm - a fact that was evident at the 10th annual International Ballet Festival here this weekend. It's hard not to think that today's crop of top Latin stars will eventually have an effect on American ballet. In some ways, they already have.
