Advancing creative visionaries on and off the stage.

Miami DanceMakers (MDM) is an annual six-month professional development program that supports local dance makers at early stages of their careers by offering a stipend, mentorship, workshops, and networking and performance opportunities. 
Each year, selected MDM Artists are paired with local performing arts organizations in Miami that serve as Creative Development Partners offering in-kind rehearsal space during the creative process. In exchange, MDM Artists volunteer behind the scenes to support their partners while simultaneously developing skills in production, arts administration, and community engagement. 
The six-month program also includes artistic mentorships, professional development workshops in arts management, work-in-progress showings for the local community and culminates with a live performance throughout the galleries of the Pérez Art Museum of Miami.
