Located in the South Dade/Falls/Kendall Neighborhood, Excello Dance Space offers an intimate alternative dance venue for up-close and personal audience viewing. Unlike traditional theatrical performing arts centers, the space creates a comfortable environment where the audience can engage in the spirit of each performance. Excello, established in 2002, offers affordable rental and performance opportunities to local dance artists. The space provides raised seating, professional sound and a 32 channel lighting / dimmer board for viewing contemporary work. Since 1989, Peterson and Dancers, a non-profit service and presenting organization, has been dedicated to the development, education and presentation of dance.

Since its opening, Excello has showcased over 25 different events, 50 performances featuring 500 dancers, 50 musicians, 100 youth dancers and 100 wheelchair dancers.

These ensembles have included The Good for Something Dancers, the Gulliver Jazz Band, The Greater Miami Youth Symphony, Revolutions Dance Company, Dancers Improv Group and Ultimatum from France and Ballo from Montenegro.

In the summer of 2007, Excello moved to a larger location where the seating is more comfortable, the dance space enlarged and the air conditioning updated. It is located ten steps from the former venue!

The Choreographers have included Joanne Barrett, Elsa Valbuena, Dale Andree, Katherine Kramer, Letty Bassart, Carlota Pradera, Dean Sweeney, Orazio Giurdanella, Bill Doolin, Heather Maloney, Gerda Konig, Elana Lanczi, Don Friedewald, Rosie Herrera, Randy Burd, Andea Dawn Shelley, Leah Verier Dunn, Stacey Cooney, Carly Dorman, Robyn Luck, Robin Princhard, Ana Miranda, Alicia Cutaia, Tegan Schwab, Luis Cuevas and
I-Hua Yeh.
