Spam All Stars to Perform.

Miami City Ballet’s Upper Room – a dedicated group of art & culture lovers in their 20s and 30s – will kick off MCB’s 2011-12 season with a party.

An exciting night of mixing and mingling with MCB dancers and other young professionals awaits: indulging on scrumptious cocktails and decadent light bites and dancing to the sounds of Spam All Stars and their unique blend of improvisational electronic elements and turntables with Latin, funk, hip hop and dub to create what they call an “electronic descarga.”

The party is free for current MCB’s Upper Room members and $15 for non-members. Non-members who purchase a membership before or at the party will be waived the $15 cover. RSVP by calling (305) 929-7000, ext. 1446 or email

MCB’s Upper Room serves to cultivate interest in dance among South Florida’s young professionals. The group’s host committee is Jordan Dresnick, Melissa Fernandez, Valeria Gadala Maria, Megan Harmon, Evaggelia Hatzimanolis, Annie Hernandez, Kai Jacobs, Liza Lesser, Judy Lara, Michelle McClaskey, Sean McCormick, Lee Metz, Jane Muir, Bette Ann Schlossberg, Jessica Schults, Paree Taslimi, Brenda Vargas and Amy Wiborg.

Annual membership is $200 which includes a ticket to three opening night performances at the Adrienne Arsht Center, exclusive parties throughout the season and discount offers on select MCB performances and events. Add a second membership for only $25 more and get two memberships for $225.

The season runs October 21st through April 1st at the Adrienne Arsht Center in Miami. Program I opens the season (October 21-23) with the Upper Room’s namesake work, In The Upper Room, by Tony® Award winning choreographer Twyla Tharp. Season highlights include a World Premiere ballet by 25 year old Liam Scarlett, Britain’s hottest, young choreographer from London’s Royal Ballet, the return of the full-length productions of Giselle and Coppélia and the holiday favorite George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker™.
