Who We Are
Miriam’s Dance Academy is a Christ-Centered dance academy under H.U.U.R.T. non profit organization. We focus on excellence in building our dance program and providing quality studio practices and performances. We began in 2017 and are located in Greensboro, NC. Our main genres of dance are liturgical, contemporary, lyrical and modern. Our staff and instructors have a passion to teach, a heart for children and youth and a heart to see our dance academy please God in everything we do.
Currently we do not house a dance studio space. Therefore, our practices are held at the Greensboro Cultural Center.
We teach ages 3-18; however, one day we hope to offer adult classes. We also offer workshops and outreach performances. If you are in need of a workshop for your liturgical dance team or are interested in hosting us at your worship service or event please contact us.
Our mission is to advance the Kingdom of God by building Kingdom dancers through dance and worship.
Our vision is to embrace all races, dance abroad, expanding our worship to others outside of our city, country and into the nations. We want to reach as many people as we can through dance and worship. We seek to bridge the gap between communities offering the love of Christ and sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ through dance.

Prayer is the foundation of everything we do.
