On Sunday, October 11 at Aventura Arts & Cultural Center, we enjoyed Arts Ballet Theater of Florida’s seasonal opening, with an exciting contemporary program featuring a new work for the company: “Tarde en la Siesta,” choreographed and staged by Alberto Mendez, with music by Ernesto Lecuona and accompanied by live music.
This new commission was accompanied by “Fuga con Pajarillo” along with Spanish ballet excerpts such as “Don Quixote,” and “Laurencia” in a performance of Ballets with Latin Flavor.
We not only enjoyed the show, but got to meet the dancers. And a delightful lunch followed at Bone Fish Grill.
Thanks to Joanne Levite for her CC leadership, and Nora Weinreich and Sandra Simon for hosting another wonderful Cultural Camaraderie program.
