From their effortless, gazelle-like leaps to their languidly low grand plies, these dancers are a testament to sacrifice in the name of high art. Tonight, these pliable athletes will perform time-honored works from Les Sylphides and Coppelia Act II along with original works featuring Verdi's The Seasons as accompaniment and a new piece entitled PrimaDonna, which showcases the talents of world-renowned ballerina Dagmar Moradillos.
The "Grand Ballet Gala" starts at 7:30 p.m. at the Miramar Cultural Center (2400 Civic Center Place, Miramar). Tickets cost $25 and $30. Call 954-602-4500 or visit miramarculturalcenter.org.
