From first catching the ballet bug at the tender age of 4,
to celebrating her 16th and final season with Miami City
Ballet, Ballerina Patricia Delgado has lived a life firmly
pivoted around the state of classical dance in The Magic
City, finessing a pre-adolescent interest into a vital
vocation that has come to define the company she’s a
part of. Now embarking on a new stage in her career, will
Delgado be able to easily depart her hometown? “I cry
almost everyday,” she admits, confirming that she will
shortly be leaving for a schedule centered around New
York City. An enduring inspiration to Miami-based artists
everywhere, Delgado’s dynamic dance career is proof
that one need not leave the county bounds to be at the
pinnacle of their creative field; MiamiCityBallet.org.
