• Florida Arts & Dance Company was founded with a vision to enhance cultural awareness through classical ballet instruction, dance education and performance opportunities.  We continue to expand this mission through programs for at risk children, dance training in a variety of disciplines, adult programs and early childhood programs.

  • Dance Inclusion

    This is a unique therapeutic exercise program that uses dance and music to help students in the Martin County School District Special Needs Program.  This program gives these children self-confidence while also improving their physical and mental abilities.  The students are given the opportunity to perform and show their achievements.  This program is funded by the United Way of Martin County and Seacoast National Bank Foundation.

  • Dunbar Daycare Center

    This program services 35 to 40 children from the Dunbar Daycare Center and the Gertrude Walden Childcare Center.  The children have the opportunity to experience the joy of creative movement, as well as build self-confidence.

  • Dance Me a Story

    This yearly performance series is a collaboration with the Martin County Library System that brings literacy to life.  Each year a classic children’s book is choreographed into a performance, providing a performance opportunity for FADC students and an enriching experience for young audience members.

  • Dance Sport

    This program is a collaboration between FADC and the 10th Street Community Center.  FADC instructors teach a variety of forms of dance and theatre arts in on-site classes. Dance Sport focuses on the idea that dance is exercise, it can improve self-esteem, teaches teamwork, unleashes true talent and can instill passion for the arts in children. Dance Sport students perform in FADC's performances.  These programs are supported through the Children's Services Council of Martin County.

  • Nancy O'Malley Scholarship Fund

    Through the generosity of Nancy O'Malley, this fund was established more than nineteen years ago and furthers the education of dedicated young dancers.  Scholarships are based on financial need.
