I have to say that as a musician that loves ballet, I have had the opportunity of enjoying some of the top ballet in the world, many times in may life.
Now I live in Miami and I canĀ“t believe how lucky I am of having the chance of enjoying and admiring the beautiful, breathtaking and professional work of Art Ballet Miami, especially the work that they do with the children.
My little daughter has this privilege also, taking an active role as student.
The professional staff of dancers is of the best quality which is pretty amazing because they are so young....
All this it is not surprising because they have a full professional staff and one of the brightest and best classical ballet choreographer and professor in the country, Mr. Vladimir Issaev, that with his impressive experience, especially in the Russian Ballet School, that has been acknowledged internationally.
In addition, they have several scholarships and give free performances in several community schools, fact that contributes significantly to their outreach projection to the south Miami community.
So, I hope they will receive all the support for the social and artistic benefits that the people of south Florida deserve.

I have been a student of Vladimir's since the age of 3. Since then I have performed some major roles in the academy for example in 2007 I protrayed the role od Clara in the Nutcraker. Vladimir Issaev is and always will be the most amazing ballet master to have ever lived! He has taught me so much discipline over the years and I love him. I am dedicated to this academy and always will. Vladimir's School of Classical Ballet is and always will be forevermore my second home. <3

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

fundraisers, performances, International Festivals, and Apperances at events.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Put most of the apprentices that are currently back in the company back in Intermidiate 2 to perfect their tecnique. Because they are not ready for this commitment like others are and they have alot to work on.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the dancing, it brings my soul to life and takes all my troubles away.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

amazing, nice, well-structured, and disciplined. They are my family.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

oversee its potential by 1000 miles.

Ways to make it better...

Students were advanced to the next level for their hardwork and ability, not because of their age or what grade they are in.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Competition. In our academy we all strive with our sweat, blood, and tears to achieve what others cannot.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I love Ms. Ruby Romero and Master Vladimir Issaev. They are my home away from home.

South Beach Chamber Ensemble members Michael Andrews, cello and Ciro Fodere, piano, collaborated with Arts Ballet Theatre of Florida to perform selections from Aldemaro Romero's Suite for Cello and Piano for "En Trois Parties", choreographed by their superb guest choreographer Josee Garant. We thoroughly enjoyed working with the company and were delighted to perform three times with their wonderful dancers.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

very professional, courteous and dedicated to providing the best experience for young dancers.

I am lucky to say that I was one of the founding members of Arts Ballet Theatre of South Florida. As a dance professor, I have gained much expertise through my experience with the company and I constantly, am amazed at how the company has grown and it continues to produce exquisite artists. ABTSF is a great example of dream that has been nurtured by a supportive community and donors. I am also very fortunate to have the opportunity to give back by teaching in their summer workshops. ABTSF has helped individuals like myself to continue a life and love of dance.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

being a former dancer for the company and also teaching in their summer workshops.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the opportunities that it provided to perform with guest artists and to be part of the creative process.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

always warm and kind. Ruby is the best!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

push the artists boundaries...
