Tiny Dancers

The dancers of Intensity Dance Studio are gracing Miramar today. They’ll be doing pieces in all the major styles: ballet, jazz, hip-hop, tap, contemporary, ballroom, lyrical, and break dancing. It’s a pretty staggering array.

The Intensity Dance Studio is unique. Based in Miami Lakes, it offers classes to tiny dancers mainly: The average age for students is 12 (a handful are twenty-somethings). Young people of most any skill set enroll and dedicate between one and 15 hours a week to 10 months of classes. “Dance 24/Seven” is their big annual event to showcase what they’ve learned since August of last year. A super-talented few have been chosen for the competitive team, which competes in state and national events; last year they went to Chicago. Now is the best time to enroll at Intensity for the session starting in August. A year from now, you could be onstage with the next troupe.

“Dance 24/Seven” at the Miramar Cultural Center (2400 Civic Center Place, Miramar), Sunday, June 14, 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. Tickets cost $30. Call 954-462-0222, or visit browardcenter.org.
