Miami City Ballet Event Exclusively for Singles

In a pas de deux, or a “dance for two”, one partner must have complete confidence in handling the other. Whether completing a forte turn into an arabesque or leaping into a grand jetê into their partners’ arms, partnering has the same components as finding a mate. In looking for a partner, Edward Villella advises, “Have some compatibility. Identify your separate preferences. Have a common interest.”

If you’re single, finding the ideal partner can be compared to finding the right job in this recession…it’s down right exhausting. However, in both cases, one must remain optimistic. Miami City Ballet has just the answer - The Art of Partnering Singles Event.

Event Chairmen Alexander I. Tachmes, Esq. and Dr. Leonard Tachmes lead a host committee to bring Miami singles a night full of events on April 23rd.  The night begins with a performance by Miami City Ballet at The Ophelia & Juan Js. Roca Center at 6:00 p.m. and a private after party at the W Hotel on South Beach at 9:00 p.m. For $100.00, the evening also offers complimentary cocktails, DJ, and extreme dating experiences silent auction. All proceeds benefit Miami City Ballet.

If successful, the board and Villella hope to make this an annual event. Founding Artistic Director of Miami City Ballet and Kennedy Center Honoree, Villella is also the CEO. “I always look for something fresh everyday.  I love what I do; I don’t look for any specific goal to achieve. I look at the overall achievement.”

Villella, happily married for thirty years, is the Director of the Miami City Ballet School. To work and live with your spouse creates its’ own unique balance. Of his professional and personal partnership with his wife he says, “It’s easy. We practice logic and practicality. We rely on each other. We allow ourselves to depend on each other. You have to like each other."

Miami City Ballet will exemplify partnership. Villella wants Miami singles to see their performance as “stage romance…we depend on each other. It’s an important aspect. We, the gentleman, have to understand and look after women on stage. Find the balances, the lifting… it’s like a marriage.”

As in a pas de deux and finding your true love, the main component to find is… trust.

    You have to trust your partner when you are dancing if you dont trust them what is partnership in dance??? i know Edward Villella and what he says he means it, he has done an excellent job in miami city ballet and is a great man. inside dance you can find a lot of romance and can meet new people and find a great partner to be by your side.

    you do have to trust your partner in dancing. Otherwise you could think he/she might do something wrong, and if you perform in public you might get nervous and then something actually may happen. If you dont think you can trust your partner try finding another one that you can trust.

  • Michelle, p.6 4 years ago

    Trust does seem important in most things. In dancing it seems even more so in order to have a beautiful dance.

  • Ibel G. 4 years ago

    Trust is such an important element in partner dancing. Partner dancing is a beautiful expresion of dance which shows the bond between two people. I had wondered, what does a single person looking for a dance partner do? Well, this event, The Art of Partnering Singles Event, is so great. Finally there is a solution!

    I also believe that trust is important in dancing, especially with a partner. I hope that the event is succesful so that it becomes annual.

  • stephanie menendez p.6 4 years ago

    i do agree with this article! You can have fun with your partner and at the same time you spend more time together! great article!! :)

  • Alexsandra, P.6 4 years ago

    I agree too that one partner must have complete confidence in handling the other. And in dancing is important because if the other partner doesn't trust him/her the dance won't go so great, but if they both trust each other and have confidence it's like the both of you are one.Thanks I liked this article too.

    The main component in a healthy relationship is trust. Without a doubt being able to confide in your partner is key to having a long and stress free marriage, just like the marriage of Villella (director of Miami City Ballet School). Being able to enjoy a night as well as contribute to Miami City Ballet is great and you never know, you might find your future partner. (;

    I think the dance was very classy and beautiful.And it was nice to see a dance like this.

  • Lian. per.6 4 years ago

    I agree completely with this article,you have to trust your partner.Your performace won't be as good as you want it to be by the cause of not wanting to dance with your partner,you have to be comfortable in letting you partner take control once in awhile like letting them hold you through a grand jete.I mean who would want to jump into the arms of other that they don't have confidence in.
