NEW: Vis-à-Vis with Ruben Martin

This week we spoke with Ruben Martin, an entrepreneurial former principal dancer with San Francisco Ballet currently serving as Ballet Master for Washington Ballet. While still performing, he co-founded Zarely, everyone’s favorite dancewear company, and since the pandemic began, he has co-founded two additional companies we are all intimately familiar with: Worldwide Ballet Class and MySensei. Watch to see where Ruben derived his ideas from and what lessons he can offer to other entrepreneurial dancers.

COVID-19 Relief

In this time of social distancing and shelter-in-place orders, we can be thankful for our creative roots as "necessity is the mother of innovation” (Plato). Never have we been more in awe of our dance community for its originality in programming for fellow artists and audience members. Virtual classes are happening continuously, worldwide, by dancers from their own livings rooms; archival content is being shared generously to inspire those quarantined at home; inventive collaborations between choreographers and audiences are flourishing online despite in-person interactions fading away.  

 

Miami Dance Hub is making an on-going effort to provide links to organizations offering financial resources, educational tools, virtual classes, and streaming performances. Follow us on Instagram for in-the-moment updates on live classes and streaming performances. Again we look to you, our community, for synergy in collecting information. Please send your classes, performances, and resources to submissions@miamidancehub.com (or submit directly through our website HERE to add your content to our website.  

We are all artists-in-residence of our own homes so let’s make the best of it. Stay healthy, stay safe, and keep dancing!
