The Middle Child: Finding My Voice Through Dance
“The middle school reminds me of the middle child, longing for a voice of their own.” —Dr. Constance McIntyre
Hidden in a community of misrepresentation of a failed past, a local middle school, which once was on the brink of shutting down, resurfaces to a vision of hope and inspiration via its new department of dance.
Carol City Middle School, located in Miami Garden, FL was earmarked to close after five consecutive years as a ‘F’ rated school. It’s new principal, Mr. Derrek Negron, revises a new plan to change the landscape in hopes of pulling the negative mindset from its roots. In order to revitalize the school as well as community, he initiated a performance arts wing, with dance at the forefront.
With less than four months marked on the calendar, a skilled, kind, and experienced dance director was selected to steer the reigns to bring this vision to fruition
Understanding the dynamics of the middle child, Dr. Constance McIntyre, the program’s new Director of Dance & Film, graciously creates a platform for a beautiful group of middle school students to discover their voice through dance.
