Miami City Ballet comes to Broward County this year with a show that condenses the best of 20th-century dance. It opens with Square Dance,George Balanchine's acclaimed 1957 ballet and one of his most popular light confections. Next up is Jerome Robbins' Afternoon of a Faun, a duet from 1953 about a young dancer, absorbed by his mirrored reflection in a dance studio, who is interrupted by a ballerina. It's followed by Liturgy, a haunting 2003 piece by Christopher Wheeldon, and the evening ends with its most anticipated work: Twyla Tharp's signature 1986 ballet In the Upper Room, with its stunning cast portraying Chinese temple guard dogs, a two-person "bomb squad," and six running-shoe-wearing "stompers" in a propulsive, twisted masterpiece.
