Women score big with Miami City Ballet’s Super Ballet Sunday, a respite for women of all ages from beer, boys and boorish behaviour! Men in tights will leap, vault and soar, and ladies will not have to tackle the kitchen or the mess! The Neighborhood Ballroom is the story of how a sultry widow, a vixen flapper, a glamorous Hollywood star and a sexy Latin nightclub dancer vie for the attention of a Poet in a neighborhood ballroom as they dance the hot new dances of the day. The four acts are: “The Waltz: Our Lady of Oblivion” (Villella/Rennó); “The Quick-Step: Unspeakable Jazz Must Go!” (Villella/Ellington, Mack, Kahn, Yellen); “The Fox-Trot: Dancing in the Dark” (Villella/Carmichael, Parish, Ellington, et al); and “The Mambo: Mambo No. 2 am” (Villella/Prado). Available seating for Super Ballet Sunday includes: A-seating priced at $47.50 and a B-seating priced at $33.00. A pre-performance talk by Edward Villella or a member of the artistic staff will be conducted free to the ticketed audience 55 minutes prior to the performance.
