Now in its second year, “A New Definition of Dance” features internationally renowned dancers of exceptional merit, who also have disabilities.  With nearly two weeks of statewide events, “A New Definition of Dance” strives to break down negative stereotypes of people with disabilities, introduce students and veterans with disabilities to a new method of communication and self-expression, encourage dance majors to explore dance forms through varying types of bodies and abilities, and provide career development and professional opportunities for artists with disabilities.

Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs is proud to partner with VSA Florida to bring “A New Definition of Dance” to Miami and offer FREE workshops for professional dancers, choreographers and educators, as well as masterclasses for students ages 13-22.


Space is limited!
