News Briefs:MCB School Offers Open House with Free Dance Classes

Miami City Ballet School is hosting a free Open House on Saturday, August 10, 2013 from 10 am to 4 pm featuring free half hour beginning adult ballet, modern, jazz classes, creative movement classes for children, Pilates mat class, a tour of the dance studios and placement auditions for the upcoming school year.

 “If your child has expressed interest in studying dance — or if you have ever wanted to try a dance class for yourself — August 10 is your day to do it,” said Roberto Santiago, Public Relations Manager for Miami City Ballet School.

Parents who have a son between the ages of 7 to 9 – who possess musicality, focus, and a natural sense of movement– can audition to earn a scholarship to study at Miami City Ballet School. No prior dance training is necessary.

And parents who have a boy or a girl age 3 to 6 can enroll in the School without having to audition at all.

Girls aged 7 to 13 who have dance training can audition to enter the School.

Talented girls and boys ages 14 to 18, who know they have what it takes to become a professional dancer, can audition for the Pre-Professional Program.

And anyone aged 14 and over – regardless if they have any dance experience – can come in to take a free 30 minutes ballet, modern or jazz class. Miami City Ballet School offers Open Classes to anyone in the community who wants to learn how to dance. We will also give guests a chance to try a Pilates mat class at the Open House.

 Miami City Ballet School is located at 2200 Liberty Avenue in South Beach, near 22nd Street and Collins Avenue — across the street from the Bass Museum and the Miami Beach Public Library.
