Miami Dance Mecca is a project that we believe can help us strengthen the notion of Miami as a viable, vibrant and diverse emerging center for dance in the country, thus increasing the rate of local professional dancers who will remain in Miami to pursue a dance career, and attracting out-of-town dancers into our community.
Our objectives with this project is to support our organization in hiring full-time professional dancers and staff; to create internship opportunities for dancers to develop professionally and artistically, and to hone the skills of arts administrators starting in the field; to impact our community by offering open rehearsals, school performances and master class series that will be broadly accessible to public schools and community centers through our educational program.
