Thursday, November 21st is Miami’s biggest day of giving and we want you to get involved. Every year The Miami Foundation hosts Give Miami Day , a 24-hour fundraising event. Organizations across the city raise funds for their incredible missions that make a huge impact on our community. Here are the programming and projects you’ll be supporting if you choose the Thomas Armour Youth Ballet this Give Miami Day.
Emotional literacy is a component Thomas Armour Youth Ballet added to it’s after school programming about two years ago. The emotional literacy component consists of five-minute meditation at the beginning of dance class, weekly emotional intelligence classes, mental health services, and there’s also a social worker is available to help students and families with a variety of needs that affects student’s quality of life.
PROFESSIONALLY TAUGHT DANCE CLASSES
Dance classes are offered daily at our after school program and summer camp to students free of charge. Dance classes like ballet, tap, jazz, hip hop, west african, and bollywood are all high quality and taught by professional dance teachers.
All students receive reading classes daily from a certified teacher to help students that are behind to get on reading level and to challenge master readers.
Students also receive homework assistance daily with a focus on math and meeting core standards.
REBUILDING THE CONSERVATORY
Thomas Armour Youth Ballet’s main site in South Miami is finally expanding it’s a small building with three studios. The new modifications to the building will include two new large studios, a larger lobby, and a study area for students waiting for their classes to begin. This expansion will allow TAYB to provide more classes, will allow the school to expose students to more dance styles, and will make more in-studio performance opportunities possible.
