On October 13, Wynwood Art Walk goers were minding their business at popular spot, the Wynwood Walls. No one expected a ballet dancer in street clothes to strike a pose right smack in the middle of the crowd as the DJ changed her tune to tango! That dancer was principal Jeanette Delgado, who was soon joined by a group of Miami City Ballet dancers that trickled into the choreography as the surprise performance mesmerized the spectators. And just like that, Miami City Ballet launched a Random Act of Culture™.
The dancers gave the amazed crowd a little taste of Paul Taylor’s sizzling Piazzolla Caldera, which is featured in Program I: Fire and Ice, opening the 2012-2013 Season this weekend at Adrienne Arsht Center. The flash mob was part of the Knight Foundation’s Random Acts of Culture™. If you weren’t lucky enough to be at the Wynwood Walls during Art Walk at the right time, check out this video to see what you missed.
