“Everyone says I’m a jumper, and it’s true—I love fast action onstage"
Kleber Rebello can rock an audience with multiple pirouettes and
steps that ricochet into a grand jeté. The 21-year-old Miami City Ballet
soloist hit his irrepressible stride as the Harlequin in Balanchine’s La Sonnambula and the scene-igniting Mercutio in Cranko’s Romeo and Juliet.
“Everyone says I’m a jumper, and it’s true—I love fast action onstage,”
admits this Rio de Janeiro native, an apprentice just two years ago.
“But I also get into deep emotion.” For Rebello, who trained at Escola
de Dança Spinelli and Companhia Brasileira de Ballet before coming to
the Miami City Ballet School, perfecting neoclassical technique has
involved an artistic growth spurt he calls radical. This let him reach
into his soul for a haunting Melancholic in The Four Temperaments when MCB took Paris by storm last summer. The dancer will keep aiming for both heart and humor when Giselle’s peasant pas de deux and Franz in Coppélia
come up for him this season, along with a Liam Scarlett world premiere,
at Adrienne Arsht Center in Miami-Dade, the Broward Center for the
Performing Arts, and the Kravis Center in Palm Beach. —Guillermo Perez Photo by Kyle Froman, Courtesy MCB.
