Join us at The Light Box at Goldman Warehouse for the Miami DanceMakers informal showing followed by a facilitated conversation about the new dance works and creative process behind their development.
Miami DanceMakers is an artist driven, community infused, fresh move maker project. For six-months, five selected MDM artists are paired with local creative development partners throughout Miami that offer in-kind rehearsal space and co-host monthly showings for local audiences. In exchange, MDM artists volunteer to support their partners behind the scenes providing MDM artists with personal access to a professional network.
The project was founded by Adele Myers, the Miami-based, nationally recognized Artistic Director of Adele Myers and Dancers, who appreciated the caliber of Miami’s pre-professional dance artists and noticed their need for a local network to help them thrive after graduation.
Adele Myers and Dancers, Inc. (AMD) is a Miami based not-for-profit dance theater company committed to the advancement of female dance artists through process, performance and community engagement all deeply rooted in female empowerment.

Since relocating its home base from the northeast to Miami in 2015, AMD has received commissions from the Miami Light Project in 2018 for “Girls!Girls!Girls!” and MDC Live Arts in 2019 for “The Stage Show.” From 2019-2021 will be company-in-residence at the South Miami Dade Cultural Arts Center where SMDCAC will commission and present new and existing AMD repertory for two consecutive seasons.
