Poetry in Motion Program:

Iuvenalis”, a ballet specifically choreographed for students of the Miami City Ballet School, features three young couples on the verge of adulthood. Set to Schubert’s “Death and the Maiden”, the piece conveys that the end of youth is not an abrupt, sudden or obvious event; but a slow decaying transformation.

While caterpillars eventually bloom into butterflies, the cocoons they leave behind are past lives that wither, fade and only live on as memories and dreams. How profound is it that as youthful life transitions into maturity, a type of “death” must occur to our former selves, to our old perspectives and to our previous ways of comprehending the world around us.

 Spirited Syncopations

Spirited Syncopations is a work comprised of lively and energetic dances set to the music of one of America’s greatest light orchestral composers, Leroy Anderson. The ballet is inspired by glamor and exuberance of the old Hollywood musicals that starred Fred Astaire, Ginger Rodgers, and Gene Kelly. It employs elements of jazz and tongue in cheek humor to give you a performance that will leave you toe tapping in your seat!

Liebtanze Pas de Deux

The pas de deux from Liebtanze is accompanied by music by Franz Schubert, to a song titled, “Du bist die Ruh,” which is German for “you are the calm.” The pas de deux is inspired by the longing, love, and passion heard through the music. Though the accompaniment does not include the original lyrics for the song, taken from Friedrich Rückert’s 1822 poem, words from the song include:

“You are the calm,
The restful peace:
You are my longing and
what makes it cease.

With passion and pain
To you I give
My eye and heart
Are yours to live.

All other grief
You dispel from my breast:
My heart swells
With the love of you.”
