Miami City Ballet's 2005-06 program will feature two company premieres and a variety of George Balanchine ballets, the Miami Herald reports.

The company will perform Twyla Tharp's Push Comes to Shove: which was created for Mikhail Baryshnikov, who premiered it in 1976: and Jerome Robbins' Dances at a Gathering, set to a series of Chopin mazurkas, waltzes, _tudes, and other works.

Tharp's Nine Sinatra Songs is also on the program.

The season's repertory also includes Balanchine's Prodigal Son, Square Dance, Western Symphony, and Slaughter on Tenth Avenue, as well as a work by artistic director Edward Villella, called Quick-Step: Unspeakable Jazz Must Go!.

The works are divided into four programs, which take place from fall to spring, interrupted by a Balanchine Nutcracker season around Christmas.

Miami City Ballet performs at the Jackie Gleason Theater in Miami Beach, the Broward Center for the Performing Arts in Fort Lauderdale, and the Kravis Center in West Palm Beach, as well as regularly touring in the United States.
