The International Ballet Festival in Miami is easily the state’s biggest and boldest festival of its kind. Ballet companies from all across the globe are brought together, and it only happens once a year. This year’s festival is July 28th to August 19th, and the festivities will take you all across Miami. Whether you’re a dancer yourself or just someone who appreciates the art of ballet, this festival is perfect for you.
The festival is broken down into four segments. Programs 1 and 2 are designed to represent the youth and the next generation of ballet professionals.

There will also be lots of art exhibits, presentations, workshops and master classes for people looking to take their understanding to the next level.
