To celebrate Edward Villella’s tremendous influence on the dance world as well as Miami City Ballet’s Manhattan Debut at New York City Center, a special luncheon called In the Company of Dancers & Friends, was held to honor Edward Villella, Founding Artistic Director and CEO of Miami City Ballet. The featured guest speaker was Robert Gottlieb, and several renowned artists were in attendance, including Chita Rivera, Allegra Kent, Jacques D’Ambroise, Heather Watts, and Damian Woetzel.

The company is under the Artistic Direction of Edward Villella since its founding in 1986 and is among the largest ballet companies in the United States.
