On Friday, April 15, Members and friends of Out Professionals meet at Lincoln Center as Miami City Ballet, one of America’s leading companies, premieres a spectacular triple-bill. Experience Justin Peck’s exhilarating “Heatscape,” Liam Scarlett’s gut-wrenching “Viscera,” and George Balanchine’s glamorous “Bourrée Fantasque.”

According to Alastair Macaulay of The New York Times, “The dancers flood the theater with qualities of warmth and vitality that are like no other ballet company’s.”
