Our Students

The Center for the Arts will benefit students of all ages at Miami Country Day School.

When I grow up, I want to be a prima ballerina. When I’m dancing, I feel loose, and I feel free, and I feel like I can do anything. It makes me feel strong, and it’s just a fun thing to do.
— Nina ’22


When I’m relaxed, I like to draw, and it also expresses my feelings. Let’s say I want to make something—I usually draw it out first. Drawing helps you with a lot of things.
— Patrick ’22


Art is a way people express themselves, and anyone can do it. I want to be an actor because I love expressing myself… I love laughing.
— Camryn ’20

I want to be a comedian or an actor. I want to have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
— Mikey ’22


Art is being extravagant with your thoughts.
—Sofia ’21


Art is showing people your talent and being able to express what you love. Dance gives you the ability to express what you are feeling, and acting makes you feel like you are in a different world. Without the Arts, everything would be boring.
— Bridgette ’18

Some say that when witnessing a breathtaking work of art, you see with your heart and feel with your eyes. I stand by that saying, and when I am moved by an artistic vision, my African roots begin to rumble and the pounding of drums begin to follow the beat of my heart as the movement of the paint brush is followed by my eyes.
— Jacqueline ’15


I like music. I want to be a guitar player.
— Daniel ’29


Great photography is a good way of showing something without explaining it.
— Mia ’18
