Miami City Ballet has relaunched its popular young professionals group, Upper Room, as it opens its landmark 30th Anniversary Season. 

MCB’s Upper Room is an affinity giving circle of dynamic young patrons who are passionate about supporting MCB’s mission of presenting the best of dance and dance education, and cultivating interest and excitement for ballet among South Florida’s growing class of young professionals. Members of MCB’s Upper Room receive a variety of unique and exciting benefits, including complimentary tickets during the season and invitations to special events throughout the year, where they will have social and business networking opportunities, exclusive access to the MCB dancers, and the opportunity to engage in philanthropic activities. 

To kick off the season and celebrate its relaunch, Upper Room members and guests are invited to MCB’s Miami Beach studios to go behind the scenes with MCB’s Artistic Director, Lourdes Lopez, dancers and special guests at Open Barre: Dance + Design on October 29 for an in-depth discussion of the confluence of ballet and the visual arts. Special guests include Tanya Williams Wetenhall, fashion and costume historian, and Michele Oka Doner, an internationally acclaimed, Miami-born visual artist and the set and costume designer for MCB’s new production of George Balanchine’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, which will premiere in Miami in March 2016. Following the program, Upper Room members and guests will enjoy an intimate party at Klima in Miami Beach, a new restaurant and bar inspired by contemporary gastronomy from Barcelona. They will mingle with MCB dancers while celebrating with complimentary beverages, bites and music.
