  • Subtle, hypnotic, and electric, A.I.M. is commandingly on target

      Contemporary dance can be one of the more mystifying art forms, but that’s also its allure — at least to me.

Fortunately Miami City Ballet delivered both at the Gaillard Center Saturday night in a beautifully balanced program of works. From the opening with Balanchine's Walpurgisnacht Ballet to the closing work by choreography's young darling Justin Peck, MCB's corps was absolutely in sync and energetic, and seemed to be having a total blast showing off their company's impressive artistic range.
