"SEE YOU AT THE THEATRE" ™
DANCE NOW MIAMI RETURNS TO
THE BROWARD CENTER FOR THE PERFORMING ARTS
WITH TWO WORLD PREMIERES
Program III also features the recreation of José Limón's iconic La Malinche
Dance NOW! Miami (DNM) returns to the Amaturo Theater at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts with Program III on Saturday, May 15 at 8 p.m. One of the leading contemporary companies in Florida, the troupe will present the world premieres of Dorian's Reflection, inspired by the classic Oscar Wilde novel, and the Jewish-themed Anusim. The program also features the company's reconstruction of dance great José Limón's iconic La Malinche, as part of their annual Masterpiece In Motion series.
Dorian's Reflection, choreographed by DNM Artistic Co-Directors Hannah Baumgarten and Diego Salterini, is a contemporary treatment of the story and characters from Wilde's novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray, a foundational part of the gay literary canon. The ballet, with an original score by internationally recognized composer Davidson Jaconello, explores the themes of fear, loneliness, loss, and moral deterioration, embodied in Dorian, who remains forever young while his portrait ages instead. The dance work updates the narrative to our modern time of selfies and social media, plastic surgery, Tinder and Grinder, flipping the story so that Dorian's projected image stays young while the character of Dorian ages.
"In our youth-obsessed culture, Wilde's novel really still speaks to us, and inspired us to create a piece that looks at today's tendency towards self-absorption and indulgence," says Salterini. The other world premiere on the program, Anusim, what is hidden is never lost, is also a Baumgarten and Salterini collaboration. It is inspired by the 1497 decree in Portugal forcing all Jews to be baptized as "New Christians," but allowing them to practice their own religion in secret. It will travel with the company in June when they go on tour to Portugal.
La Malinche, which fills out the evening, is the first piece José Limón choreographed for his own company in 1947. It is based on the real life story of an indigenous Nahua woman who played a key role in the Spanish conquest of the Aztec Empire, and is a legendary character in Mexican cultural history. The piece is reconstructed on DNM by Daniel Lewis, Limón's protégé and former Artistic Director of the Limon Dance Company after the founder's death, well known in South Florida as the Founding Dean of the Dance Department of New World School of the Arts. La Malinche is presented in collaboration with the José Limón Foundation and the 75th anniversary of the Limón Company.
The Dance NOW! 2020/21 season continues with On-Stage With Italy's Opus Ballet at Miami Theater Center on June 19 and Dance NOW! On Tour in Portugal June 20-27.

DISNEY AUDITIONS TAKE PLACE EVERY DAY IN MIAMI
START AUDITIONING FOR TV, FILM
AND COMMERCIALS IN MIAMI
If you're young and talented and you dream about an acting career, the Disney Company might be your best choice. Prepare yourself and attend the auditions. You have nothing to lose and you will have a great experience that will help you for the rest of your life.
Disney is known as one of the biggest entertainment companies around the world. Millions of guests are entertained every year and thousands of extraordinary events are produced in their Theme Parks & Resorts, in addition to their very popular Disney Channel on TV. There is a great range of ways in which you can share your talent with Disney.
If you decide to go to an audition, here are some aspects you must know. First of all, some of the present Cast Members were asked to share their experience from the auditions. Their stories are featured often and you can watch them in order to find out what you need. Also, if you have further questions, you can ask them via e-mail.
Once you get to the place where the audition is being held, a Cast Member will be there to help you with everything you need. It is very important to arrive on time because the company cares very much when it comes to punctuality. You need at least 15 minutes to complete your check-in and also to prepare for the audition. Especially if you go to that location for the first time, make sure you plan your travel carefully.
The audition room might be quite intimidating, but you have to relax and have fun. People from here were children too, so they know exactly how it feels to be at an audition. Be confident and do your best. A Disney Casting Director will run the audition and he will give you some instructions in order to help you. The room setup will be according to the sort of audition that you are attending. Another essential aspect is that most Disney auditions happen with the doors closed. Even though they know it's very important for children to be supported by family and friends, they consider that the audition is the place where kids have to go on their own. Those who accompany you will have to wait in the waiting areas.
You may also be required to perform a monologue. A monologue is an uninterrupted speech directed towards another character. As an actor, you must have a monologue on hand for every situation. It's like your business card. Even if you are not required to have one prepared, you never know when you will be asked to recite one. Depending on the role you're auditioning for, it is best to have at least one comedic monologue and one dramatic monologue, well-rehearsed, at all times. In order to best choose the monologue that is right for your range, get in an acting class!
There are some examples that prove the fact that the Disney Company is the best place for children and teenagers to start their acting career. Selene Gomez is one of them. She was discovered in 2004 by Disney. Firstly, she played a guest star on The Suite Life of Zack & Cody and she did a great job. After this, she got more and more roles, like one in Hanna Montana and another on Wizards of Waverly Place as one of the main characters. She also started to record songs. Now, she is a famous and successful actress and singer and all this happened thanks to Disney.
Miley Cyrus is another good example of an actress who achieved her wide fame due to her role as Hanna Montana on the sitcom released by Disney Channel. Ashley Tisdale makes no exception from the situation. She rose to prominence thanks to her role as Maddie Fitzpatrick in The Suite Life of Zack & Cody which is also a Disney Channel production.
If you really want to become a Disney actor or actress, keep your dream alive and develop the skills that will help you achieve that goal.

Loxen Productions, in association with Loud and Live, bring you the award-winning musical In the Heights, a new production made for Miami by South Florida artists.
From the creator of Hamilton, Lin-Manuel Miranda’s In the Heights tells the universal story of a vibrant community in New York’s Washington Heights neighborhood, a place where the coffee from the corner bodega is light and sweet, the windows are always open and the breeze carries the rhythm of three generations of music.
It’s a community on the brink of change, full of hopes, dreams and pressures, where the biggest struggles can be deciding which traditions you take with you and which ones you leave behind.
In the Heights won the 2008 Tony Awards for Best Musical, Best Score, Best Choreography and Best Orchestrations.
This performance, originally scheduled for May 8 - 9, 2020 and postponed to September 18 - 19, 2020, has been rescheduled to July
