Modernicity Dance Theatre was founded in 2009 by Cornelia Virella to provide a creative outlet for underserved, disadvantaged, at-risk youth in metro Atlanta, Georgia.  Through the rigors and discipline of dance studies, they learn important skills of team-building, self-discipline, self-esteem development, healthy lifestyle habits, accountability and building up their communities in positive ways.   

Modernicity Dance Theatre is the resident dance company at Rhythm Elements Dance Studio.  Since its formation, Modernicity has been steadily gaining a reputation as a dance company to watch.

Under the professional guidance of our artistic staff, young dancers receive expert training that builds a solid dance foundation.  Company members are provided exciting opportunities to perform on a variety of stages.
