According to the Florida Grand Opera's Brendan Glynn, "If Verdi says to put in 20 violins, we do." Such dedication to the details has kept patrons coming back to FGO for 73 seasons, making it the seventh oldest opera company in the U.S.?and garnering the seventh largest audiences in the country. Split between two waterfront venues in Miami and Fort Lauderdale, its world-class performances draw in tens of thousands of Florida residents each year. The box office has also logged ticket buyers from 39 states and 31 foreign countries, as well as Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and Washington, DC, signaling their reputation's international reach. In 2013-2014, FGO's talented casts will sound the notes of Marvin David Levy's Mourning Becomes Electra, Giuseppe Verdi's Nabucco, Giacomo Puccini's Tosca, and Jules Massenet's Thais. As intimidating as grand opera can seem to the uninitiated, the FGO eases introductions with a lively Twitter feed, a candid Facebook wall, and even its own iPhone app, which helps newbies get up to speed on opera's lurid centuries of love, lust, murder, and suicide. The FGO's FAQ page similarly dispels common misconceptions, revealing that you may wear jeans to the opera and that wearing 3D glasses won't actually improve your experience.

A veteran of the arts, with more than 15 years of experience, Sarita Ciallella has performed her fair share of gymnastic, dancing, and acting routines. But it wasn't until May 2003 that these passions culminated in Virtuous Productions, a performing-arts community center where she could imbue kids, teens, and adults with her knowledge of the arts. Together with a dedicated staff of instructors, including dancers and acting coaches, Sarita's mission—to teach new artists creative skills in a purposeful and moral way—has never changed. Sarita and her team uphold the center's seven core values: excellence, innovation, teamwork, respect, integrity, social profit, and joy. The schedule runs six days a week to keep dancers of any age or ability tapping, salsa-ing, and rhythmically stomping their feet across the studio's competition-size floor, which is made of the same material as the floor on Dancing with the Stars. Film and television classes teach aspiring stars how to emote for the camera and how to never lose a staring contest with the camera man, and the company's in-house shooting crew captures special moments with half- and full-day shoots that include editing, DVDs, and makeup applications. Virtuous Productions also supports the arts through Virtuous Nites, which offer a safe, smoke- and drink-free environment for partiers to let loose and dance.

In a mixed repertory concert, Boca Ballet Theatre’s troupe of dancers flutters and floats across the stage to the choreography of co-artistic director Dan Guin. "Spring Fever" borrows from both classical and contemporary ballet and elicits awe throughout the 520-seat theater with dazzling jazz flourishes, speedy costume changes, and dancers who solve Rubik's cubes with their feet. Guin’s “Bubblin’ Over” strikes modern chords as dancers twirl and pirouette to music by Grammy Award-winning crooner Michael Bublé, and comedic folly injects new life into Ballet Russes’ classic “Graduation Ball.” The lively production also marks a world premiere of Guin's new original work, “Voyage Classique.”
