Miami Youth Ballet School
Founded in 1996 by Marielena Mencia and Yanis Pikieris as the Mencia-Pikieris School of Dance. Their emphasis is on classicism in its traditional form. Ms. Mencia and Mr. Pikieris' philosophy and goals for each student include: to instill discipline of the body and mind, to strive for perseverance, and to learn to love, respect and enjoy dance as an art form, whether or not a career is chosen.
Our school is staffed by professional teachers with years of experience. We are committed to presenting and participating in various youth-oriented productions and, also provide an end of the year performance as well as an intensive summer dance workshop.
