Why Encore?

Encore Academy is a highly enthusiastic group of talented and qualified educators who share a passion for the arts and teaching. We believe and take pride in our positive and caring atmosphere which promotes creativity and learning in both the performing and visual arts.

We challenge our students by affording them the opportunity to participate in multiple competitions, exams, and concerts throughout the school year, all catered to their individual proficiency level.

Our first location opened on October 19th, 2010. On July 18th, 2016, Encore opened its second location in the South Miami area where we not only offer Music lessons, but also Dance, Musical Theater, and Visual Arts.

Call us to schedule a try out class today and join our growing family. We would love to hear from you!
