This year’s benefit performance is in tribute of Ms. Joan Miller. Proceeds will provide for her medical needs and care as she battles Alzheimer’s Disease. The Dancer’s Edge Company and many of Ms. Joan’s past students and their dance companies will perform for a spectacular evening of dance! A reception follows the performance.
E. Joan Miller was Owner and Director of The Palm Beach Ballet Center for over 50 years. A pillar in the dance world, Joan produced countless professionals who went on to careers on Broadway, in movies, soloists in major ballet and modern companies, choreographers, owners of dance schools, and directors and teachers of arts schools and college programs. The thousands of dancers’ lives impacted by this remarkable lady, teacher, and artist span across the United States and abroad to Europe and South America.
Her selfless life was dedicated to dance, her students, and animals. All were regarded as the center of her world. She inspired her students to seek their art form at nothing less than a high level of excellence. She was regarded as a teacher, 2nd mother, task master, philanthropist, mentor, and dear friend by those lucky enough to experience her magic and love of dance. Her gifts to us have been invaluable and deserving of reciprocation.
Be a part of giving back to this “Dame of Dance Life” by celebrating over half a century of her undying commitment. The memories of Miss Joan and the Palm Beach Ballet Center will be remembered in the hearts of dancers and passed on to generations for years to come. Attend The Love Affair in homage to Joan’s exceptional service or donate to help in the next steps of her life as she battles with Alzheimer’s Disease and is in need of medical care.
