Miami City Ballet dancers are used to whirling and leaping to a big finale, but as they rehearse the ending of their next premiere, their feet are planted firmly on the floor. The only things moving are their mouths, in a familiar, yearning ballad: “There’s a place for us,” they sing, “somewhere a place for us,” before dropping their heads into stillness.
The song is Somewhere, from the renowned musical West Side Story. And singing was not the only challenge for MCB as the troupe preparedWest Side Story Suite, which it will premiere Friday at the Adrienne Arsht Center.
