Over the past twenty four successful years the Annual International Ballet Festival of Miami (IBFM) has had the pleasure of hosting ballet stars representing some of the most important Ballet and Contemporary companies from Europe, Asia, Latin America and USA.
For the first time all of the Festival’s performances, and events will be virtually streamed! A great opportunity to see the guest companies directly from home. The IBFM will also stream dance films, IBFM Archives, fine arts exhibition, dance book presentations and master classes.
Aug. 21 – Sept. 10: The IBFM presents “Support the Arts!” PLAY.ticketmundo.com
IBFM proudly presents “Support the Arts!” a fund raiser created to assist the dance community due to cancellation of events and uncertainty of when theaters will open again. Companies from Argentina, Brazil, Dominican Republic, Estonia, Italy, Philippines, Slovenia, Switzerland and USA present prerecorded full length performances. 19 performances are available on PLAY.ticketmundo.com. A $10 access fee will give the audience 24 hours to watch a performance of their choice. All Funds raised during “Support the Arts!” will go directly to participating companies. Your generous support and donations will help us keep arts alive.
Sept. 11 – 13: The Festival closes with three live streamed performances!
Featuring guest Principal Dancers from national ballet & contemporary dance companies.
