Founded in 1993, Miami City Ballet School is recognized as one of the top dance schools in the nation. It accepts students throughout the year, from beginners (age 3 by September 1) through pre-professional level (age 19). The School runs all year round, with a Winter Program from September to mid-June, and a Summer Program from the end of June through the end of July. Classes are held at Miami City Ballet’s 63,000 square-foot state-of-the-art studios on Miami Beach. The curriculum is based on the dynamic evolution of classical dance as it enters the 21st century and beyond. The teachers and staff are dedicated to providing complete preparation for the demands of a professional dance career including technique, role characterization, presentation, and the various elements of staging. We believe, in any event, that the focus, discipline and determination with this type of training, will benefit students in any field they choose. What we want to develop in all our students is a love of dance.
