Artistic Dance Center (ADC), established in Doral, FL under the direction and vision of Elizabeth Acuna Nuevo, became an independent institution focusing intensely on its mission of excellence in dance education. Ms. Elizabeth’s philosophy of teaching focused on instilling the value of hard work, discipline, commitment, tenacity, passion, tough love, and dedication through a method of positive encouragement. It is through those teachings and experiences that she helped create strong, independent, and successful individuals. Since its establishment in 2002, students have trained for professional careers in ballet and other dance forms.

Sofia Arencibia Telleria (Ms. Sofia), ADC’s Director, began her dance training with Elizabeth Acuna Nuevo over twenty years ago. She grew up at ADC and continued to follow her passion for dance. Ms. Sofia danced professionally and has been a classical ballet teacher and choreographer for over ten years. She has trained and prepared aspiring dancers for dance competitions and careers as professional ballet dancers. Ms. Sofia holds a Business Administration and Management bachelor’s degree. She is also the founder and director of Movement Miami, an at-school creative movement and introduction to dance technique program for children.

Artistic Dance Center is more than just a dance studio, we are an institution that provides professional training and instruction for dancers of all ages and levels. Dancers at ADC receive the opportunity to train with distinguished instructors and choreographers, as well as current and former dancers from major companies worldwide. Our training goes beyond dance curriculum. We help shape and mold young dancers into strong individuals who carry themselves with confidence and handle adversity with grace. We instill strong principles in our dancers such as discipline, respect, responsibility, hard work, and perseverance. These are principles that our dancers take with them into their adult careers and make them outstanding professionals in any industry they pursue.

Artistic Dance Center is a FAMILY. Each and every dancer, parent, staff, and faculty member who enters our doors immediately becomes part of our beautiful dance family. We support one another and look after each other’s best interests with one common goal: the success and happiness of our dancers.

Artistic Dance Center is a collaboration. Dedicated, passionate people who come together to make sure that our commitment to dance is upheld and available to all who seek it. From our staff and artists to our many volunteers, the ADC family works tirelessly to ensure that we stay true to our unique vision of quality dance education. The school does not discriminate on the basis of ethnicity, gender, or religion in its admissions procedures.
