Flexibility and Dance Tricks
Mia Alonso began training at Miami Dance and Music Academy at 5 years old. After joining their company the next year, she was trained in all styles of dance from tap and hip hop to ballet and lyrical. She joined South Miami Middle School’s dance magnet program where she was exposed to more styles like Jive, Afro Carribean, and even some Bollywood training to name a few. She then attended Coral Reef Senior High where she would join the Cudettes dance team for her four years there, while continuing her formal training with Miami Dance and Music Academy. In her 13 years of training and competing, she was awarded many scholarships from each convention she attended as well as national titles as a soloist and as a part of the teams at Coral Reef and Miami Dance and Music. Since graduating, she has worked with the Lourdes Dancers and multiple studios around Miami. Leading the Lourdes Dancers to a 10th place trophy at UDA Nationals in their first year of attending the competition. Training young dancers to achieve their goals, in all areas, is her highest priority. Dance is her passion and sharing it is another. She strives for her students to reach their fullest potential inside and outside of the studio. For her, her students holding their heads higher and speaking a little clearer, is an achievement in and of itself.
