Yesterday afternoon, the Miami Heat generously teamed up with the Miami City Ballet to take artistic photos for the team’s “Ballet and Basketball” Campaign. The campaign will be celebrating 25 years of basketball and ballet, and is also promoting the arts scene on Biscayne Boulevard and the world-renowned ballet company.
Miami Heat’s very own LeBron James and Dwayne Wade posed in the photo-shoot alongside two of the ballet’s dancers, Jeanette and Patricia Delgado. The incredible photos showcase the athleticism of both a dancer and a basketball player. They are meant to capture the four powerful characteristics of each sport- grace, fitness, strength and passion.
“Miami’s about versatility – the whole culture. It’s good that we can bring that into sports,” Wade said about the campaign.
