The Academy was born in 2018 from the need to create a high-level dance academy in the heart of Miami Brickell, directed throughout these years by Myriam Ayala and enjoying an international reputation. Our objective is to accentuate the pre-professional dimension of the Academy and to allow its students, from different backgrounds and nationalities, to perfect their learning between 3 and 19 years, in order to join at the end of their training a professional company.
