Miami ballet cuts dancers

February 04, 2009|Associated Press

After a triumphant tour that won critical raves in New York, Miami City Ballet is cutting eight dancers because it can't afford to pay them.

Ballet spokeswoman Nicolle Ugarriza says the corps and apprentice dancers' contracts will not be renewed next season. The dancers were notified last week in a letter from the ballet's artistic director and chief executive officer, Edward Villella.

The cuts will reduce the troupe from 53 to 45 dancers.
