In the last Wednesday evening in May residents were treated to an exquisite performance by the Arts Ballet Theatre of Florida. An appreciative crowd of residents viewed the performance by the dancers appearing on the cafeteria stage at the Norman S. Edelcup SIB K-8 School. Dancers performed numbers from Don Quixote, the Paquita Variation, Talisman and the Shostakovich Suites.
Artistic Director Vladimir Issaev can be proud that his ballet company is well prepared for their performances. The talented dancers impressed the crowd with their athletic abilities and their artistic interpretation of the music. Costumes were beautiful and appropriate to the pieces performed. Residents can look forward to future performances of this ballet with assurance that they will not be disappointed. This ballet group is based in North Miami Beach, but performs around the world.
