Dance Classes & Leadership Training for Ages 3-18
Moving in the Spirit provides a safe, nurturing environment in which young people can study the art of dance, make friends and develop leadership skills.
Our curriculum is based in modern dance and creative movement, with opportunities to study ballet, hip hop, jazz, and West African dance. We accept students ages 3-18, beginner to advanced. Sliding scale tuition is available.
Moving in the Spirit’s unique mission is to help young people develop the social, emotional and cognitive skills they need to thrive, using the art of dance. We realize this mission by integrating youth development best practices in our class structure, which is designed to transition children successfully into adulthood. Students are given a voice in class activities and choreography, set personal goals, problem-solve with their peers and practice leadership skills. Over time, students flourish and expand their leadership in the organization. On average, they remain with Moving in the Spirit for 7 years.
Due to the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, our program year will start online on October 5th, 2020. We will continuously re-evaluate the possibility of in-person classes with a potential to return with hybrid classes in January 2021. The hybrid model consists of BOTH in-studio classes with limited capacity, as well as online classes taken from home. The days will be blocked off as “A” and “B” weeks, and will be divided evenly between in-studio and at home.
Girls should wear black footless tights or leggings and a black leotard. Boys should wear a black sports shirt and black pants or shorts.
