Florida Dance Theatre, recognizing the importance of artistic influence on the development and growth of our children and community, strives to increase awareness and appreciation of dance as a living art form and to produce works of high artistic quality in a wide variety of styles. Our continuing purpose is to provide an enriching and unique, if not superb, multicultural experience for our community and beyond.
The mission of the Academy of Florida Dance Theatre is to allow each student, regardless of age, proficiency level, or aspiration, to obtain the correct training and experience necessary to fully enjoy dance as a living art form. The close affiliation with the professional company gives the students of the Academy, whether or not they intend to pursue dance as a career, the chance to fully experience the self enriching benefits of rigorous training, physical and mental discipline, and artistic expression all on a journey that is enjoyable and fulfilling.
Florida Dance Theatre is dedicated to making the arts available to everyone. Children are of the utmost importance and their exposure to the arts as a participant or an audience member will help them in all future endeavors.
