Dance As A Vehicle to Success

For the past 30 years, Armour Dance Theatre (ADT) has created opportunities for the youth of Miami through dance-focused programming. 

Our Community Programs serve over 400 children in four diverse, under-resourced neighborhoods. When these students reach middle school age, ADT helps guide families through the magnet-school admission process to ensure all students have access to the best schooling opportunities.

Obstacles arise when students are accepted into “A-rated” magnet programs too far from their homes, and Miami-Dade County Public Schools (MDCPS) cannot provide suitable transportation. ADT offers support through stipends for private transportation.

Each year, an average of 29 students graduating from our Community Programs require transportation assistance to get to school and ADT’s main site Academy, where they continue receiving advanced dance training. Transportation stipends amount to $1,380 for each student per year.

ADT aims to raise $40,000 annually to ensure we not only support our students in their admission to “A-rated” magnet schools, but we support their ability to attend them.

Will you join us today by helping to support our transportation fund? 

Thanks to the generosity of an anonymous donor, the first $20,000 raised will be matched dollar-for-dollar!
