Dance Education

Explore Dance

Explore Dance brings Miami City Ballet Teaching Artists into local classrooms to motivate and inspire children through dance. Each of the teaching artists instructs utilizing the MCB curriculum as well as exposes students to a variety of dance forms including Contemporary, Hip-Hop, and Latin and African Dances.

The goal of Explore Dance residencies is to bring high standard dance education that stimulates student creativity and builds technical and performance skill. The residencies are conducted during the school day and/or afterschool programming. To ensure students have an authentic and safe dance experience, each student receives ballet shoes and performance attire.

In Title I Miami-Dade County Public Schools, Explore Dance is provided at no cost. All other schools and community programs may inquire about the cost of a residency. Most significantly, Explore Dance provides an opportunity for all children to be considered for further training at the Miami City Ballet School.


In partnership with City of Miami Beach and the Bass Museum, Miami City Ballet teaching artists use dance to engage students in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM) learning. We seek to inspire the next generation of innovators, artists, and leaders through experiential-based learning.
