Andrew Mikhaiel ’17

Class of 2017, B.F.A in Dance with a concentration in Ballet. Dancer and Artistic Coordinator with Les Ballets Jazz de Montréal. 

I recommend this program to any dancer seeking intensive practical dance training accompanied with equally thorough academic studies. The interconnectedness between body and mind, which is ingrained in the MMC dance curriculum made me not only a proficient dancer but a cognizant artist in the field. I can confidently say that MMC dance department prepared me for a career as a professional dancer and equipped me with the necessary tools to excel in this industry.
