Art of Miami for the
People of Miami
Miami DanceMakers is an annual six-month project that supports local dance artists in the early stages of their career by providing them with personal access to Miami’s dynamic professional performing arts network.
Each year, five to six MDM Artists are invited to develop new dance works inspired by visual art on exhibit at the Pérez Art Museum of Miami (PAMM). The project includes informal showings open to the local community and culminates in a live performance of the new dance works performed throughout the galleries at PAMM.
During the creative process, MDM Artists are paired with Creative Development Partners which are local performing arts organizations that provide in-kind rehearsal space. In exchange, MDM Artists offer their time and talent to support their Creative Development Partners behind the scenes.
