The South Miami Academy is Miami’s oldest dance conservatory with a rich, over 70-year history. The Academy has produced numerous artists who have successful careers at companies such as Martha Graham Dance Company, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, American Ballet Theatre, and Dance Theatre of Harlem, to name a few. Although the Academy began with just ballet classes, it has since expanded its class offering to include tap, musical theater, hip hop, contemporary, and flamenco. Whether your child dreams of becoming a professional dancer or simply wish to explore various dance genres, Armour Dance Theatre prides itself in catering to each individual’s needs and helping them meet their goals.
