Everyone, including the entire staff of Miami City Ballet, knows that a New York tour is a mine-field. All the more heart-ening how strong the company looked at the end of a grueling engagement.
The company was on its game throughout a strong run, but by Sunday night, the dancers had done seven shows in five days. It showed in their exaggerated lines and attack: not sloppy, but the kind of tiredness you experience when you’re dancing on fumes and giving everything you’ve got just to make it to curtain fall.
