Miami Dade College’s
(MDC) Kendall Campus present its annual Artistry in Rhythm (A.I.R.) Dance Conference, which will celebrate diversity, creativity, and gender fluidity on Thursday, March 21 to Saturday, March 23.  This year’s theme of GRANDE FETE: Uncloaking the Truths Behind Intersectionalities is an exploration, examination and experimentation of the Victorian Era from a global perspective and its effects on the contemporary social climate of today.

Produced by the MDC Kendall Campus Dance Department, A.I.R. Dance Conference is a scholarly dance event which seeks to explore the significance of community engagement through the vernacular of dance, encourage community growth and development, as well as enhance the academic environment, while focusing on recruitment. The conference will include a host of master dance classes, lecture/demonstrations, and performances. Participants will have the opportunity to take classes in Social Dance, Somatics, Body Conditioning, Ballet, Contemporary Modern, Swing, Afro-fusion and Hip-hop dance styles. Additionally, they will experience dance that is educational, rich in diversity, engaging, and historical. Participants will receive the opportunity to meet world renown dancers, artists, and choreographers while attending the conference.

This year’s MDC’s A.I.R. Dance Conference 2019 Honoree is Lourdes Lopez, the Artistic Director of Miami City Ballet. Lopez has become one of the ballet world’s most prominent and accomplished contributors.  She became Artistic Director of Miami City Ballet in 2012. As a Soloist and Principal Dancer with New York City Ballet, Lopez danced for two legends of the art form, George Balanchine and Jerome Robbins. Under Lopez’s direction, Miami City Ballet has become one of the country’s premier ballet companies. As this year’s honoree, Lopez and MCB Dance Faculty joins A.I.R. Dance faculty by teaching master classes daily at 10:15 a.m. – 11:15 am. Other guest artists include Clarence Brooks (Florida Atlantic University), Michael Foley (University of South Florida), Kieron Sargeant (Florida State University), and Alex Revis (Pinecrest Brains and Body), to name a few.
