Miami Country Day School's dance program provides a foundation in dance that introduces the creative process of self-exploration, group interaction, and the cognizance of rhythmic musicality. The course enhances our students’ dance technique in Ballet, Contemporary, Jazz, Hip-Hop, and Latin dance. The students commit to learning a variety of warm up preparations and choreographed pieces, learning diverse dance vocabulary and movements. As they progress, the students are given the opportunity to perform at our annual Evening of Dance and Evening of the Arts, both scheduled in the spring.

We believe our dance program is truly one of a kind. From our unique atmosphere to the state-of-the-art dancing studio, we provide the resources and the environment to give all dancers the best possible experience.

List of 5 items.

  • Ballet Conditioning

    Ballet sets the foundation for every dancer, in all styles of dance. Ballet stabilizes muscles in the legs, ankles, and the abdominal core for healthier knees and ankles for a lifetime. Lessons build strong balance, spatial and kinesthetic awareness.
  • Contemporary/Modern

    Moving Stories (Physical and Emotional)

    Many of our dancers love taking this class, as it gives them the opportunity to learn new movements and easily showcase their talent as individuals. Contemporary dance has become the most popular form of dance expression amongst dancers. Every class will have a new approach and a different story to tell. Dancers learn abstract movements by the changing of rhythm and directions in an unpredictable way.
  • Hip-Hop

    Hip-Hop dancing is very dynamic and helps the dancers improve flexibility, develop body balance, and coordination in a way no other dance style can. Dancers also learn Pop-Lock and Breaking.
  • Jazz

    Jazz dancing is a form of dance that showcases a dancer's individual style and originality. Every jazz dancer interprets and executes moves and steps in their own way. This type of dancing is energetic and fun, consisting of unique moves, fancy footwork, big leaps and quick turns.
  • Latin Dance

    Students learn Salsa, Merengue, and Bachata.
