Despite the charms of binge drinking and dive bars - our city's nightlife scene can get a little old after awhile. It's times like these that call for a classic cultural affair - IE, the ballet. With the Miami City Ballet, an internationally acclaimed company, we've got one of the world's best in our own backyard. With more than 40 lithe young dancers and a budget of more than $13 million, it's basically a ballet powerhouse. Their Miami Beach headquarters span a whopping 63,000 square foot, and the group's repertoire includes more than 94 productions including the likes of Prodigal Son, Apollo, Agon and The Four Temperaments. Individual tickets start at $20, so even the riff-raff can afford a little refinement. So break out your Sunday best and skip the bar scene for an evening. There's something to be said for grace and talent over beer goggles and slurred speech.
For adults and children ages 5 and up.

Miami Beach is known for its beaches, clubs, tycoons, and fashionistas, but it should also be thought of for ballet. The Beach is home to one of the nation's top ballet companies. Magic City balletomanes got lucky in 1986 when dancer Edward Villella became the troupe's founding artistic director. Under Villella's leadership, the little company has grown into a giant: 47 dancers, more than 70 annual performances in South Florida, a thriving ballet school, and a reputation for innovative...
