Miami Big Sound Orchestra

The Miami Big Sound Orchestra is downtown Miami's resident Latin Jazz big band since 2006, a project formed as a collaboration of musicians from Miami's jazz and Latin music communities. The band combines 21st-century big band jazz with Afro-Cuban and Brazilian music, funk, and soul.
Hailing from all over the western hemisphere, the members of the MBSO are all veteran Miami musicians who have performed and toured with artists such as Celia Cruz, Gloria Estefan, Issac Delgado, Jon Secada, Chayanne, Rey Ruiz, Tito Nieves, K.C. and the Sunshine Band, Chaka Khan, and the Funk Brothers, to name a few. The band's repertoire, inspired by the music of Issac Delgado, Ray Barretto, Machito, Willy Rosario, Paquito D'Rivera, Irakere, and Tito Puente, includes original compositions by Rafael "Cali" Valencia (legendary Miami
bassist/composer), Chino Nunez (Grammy-Award winning producer), and Jaui Schneider (former pianist/composer for Ray Barretto), as well as classics from legends such as the great Mario Bauza. Their leader, Peter Francis, is based at New World School for the Arts and Miami-Dade Wolfson campus.



Dance Now Miami

Dance NOW! has been described as “…unabashed beauty…” (Annie Hollingsworth, Artburst), “carnal and courageous… with an impressive range of movement and motion”, (Mia Leonin, Miami Art Guide), “…not only elegant and fierce, but dedicated to its community… a mature, exciting and bounds breaking company.” (Miguel Estefan, Miami Art Guide) with “...enough original vision here to make Dance Now! worth watching more than ever....” (Jordan Levin, Miami Herald)

Dance NOW! Miami, in residence at Miami’s Little Haiti Cultural Complex, was founded in 2000 by Diego Salterini and Hannah Baumgarten through a chance encounter at PAN, a South Florida dance collective. The two quickly became dance partners and creative collaborators; their work bridges their diverse backgrounds in ballet, modern dance, and jazz, creating poetic narrative and theatrical artistry filled with fierce athleticism. Salterini hails from an illustrious career as television and theatre star in Italy, Baumgarten received her BFA from the Juilliard School and danced professionally in Utah, New York, Arizona and Florida. The directors have created 15 full-length works and over 30 shorter pieces, individually and collaboratively, and hold a strong commitment to present the work of renowned choreographers including Gerald Arpino, Carolyn Dorfman, Michael Uthoff, Tandy Beal, Josée Garant and Tauna Hunter.
