Inspiring a life-long love of dance.
Momentum Dance Studios is proud to offer a wide variety of excellent dance classes! Year-long classes in ballet, tap, jazz, hip-hop, modern and gymnastics combo classes are offered for students beginning at age 2 ½ . At Momentum, we strive to educate and inspire our students with a life-long love of dance as a performing art. Momentum dancers learn how to dance while building self-esteem and having fun in our unique, recreational environment. The year ends with a dance recital to demonstrate what they have learned.

The year -end dance recital takes place in June at a local high school auditorium complete with a theme, stage lights, sound, and a technical crew. Students participating in the recital perform between two and three dances on stage, practice at a dress rehearsal and purchase costumes for a true performance experience. Professional photographs and videography of the recital are also available.

Children’s Classes:
Music n’ Motion, Tiny Tutus and Tap Puppies are for the littlest dancers. Children begin learning to be in a classroom environment, follow directions, work with others, and express themselves through a wide variety of movement exercises. This also includes ballet, tap, and tumbling concepts that prepare students to move on to pre-ballet classes.

Pre-Ballet and Gymnastics Combo Classes provide a fun and creative introduction to dance. Classes will include a short warm-up with gentle stretching; learn basic fundamentals of ballet and gymnastics technique, learning to take turns across the floor, developing balance and rhythm, and encouraging creativity through imaginative exercises.

Elementary through Advanced Levels:
Ballet is the basis for many other forms of dance. Ballet classes are taught with the focus on proper technique and the use of correct terminology. In addition to increasing technical proficiency and strength, dancers will work on musicality, grace, and self-expression. Ballet classes are strongly recommended for all dancers looking to be successful at any style of dance.

Tap and Jazz Classes work on style and technique with strengthening turns, leaps, and other tricks. These classes include warm-ups with stretching and strengthening exercises, across the floor combinations, and time to learn and practice choreography.

Hip-Hop Classes are fun and funky classes to get your body moving! Classes begin with warm-up and stretching and move on to combinations with the newest choreography. Energy, enthusiasm, and freedom of expression are the keys to learning this style of dance.

Lyrical Dance Classes combines ballet and jazz for a special style and presentation. This class introduces the concepts of contraction and release, fall and recovery, the use of different levels and special awareness. Improvisational work may also be included, which will let each dancer explore her or his own unique movement qualities.

Performance Group is a non-competitive performing group for dancers who are interested in extra training and performance opportunities. Dancers must also be enrolled in 2-3 other technique classes when doing performance group. This group performs a minimum of three times each year at community events, festivals and parades. Dancers will have the opportunity to choreograph their own works for a Student Showcase in the spring.

Dancers age 6+ should call the Dance Coordinator, Shelly Solis for placement.
