Our Services

Classes for Youth


“Thank you for the care and concern you gave to them during class and in preparation for their showcase.  I was so moved by the safe space and encouragement that was provided to all of the dancers during the performances, knowing it was building a healthy and positive self-concept and boosting confidence for each of the dancers.”

-Aundrea, Youth Student’s Mom

Classes for Adults


“I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy coming to classes at your studio and how wonderful, talented, and welcoming your instructors are! It's a real joy coming there - thank you!” 

-Carly, MoveStudio Client

Private Lessons


“I have so enjoyed the way you have taught me, laughed with me and made me feel comfortable.  Thank you so very much.  There are just times you meet great people and this was one.  Thank you again.”

-Lauren, Adult Dance Student

Wedding Preparation


“I had my final dance lesson before my wedding with my Dad last night and I just wanted to let you know how thrilled we all are with the lessons we had at your studio. We feel totally prepared and the lessons have really taken a lot of pressure off the big wedding dances so that we can actually enjoy them---it's fantastic.”

-Lauren, New Bride

Custom Choreography


“Everyone loved your choreography, and I hope we can work with you again next year.  I can't thank you enough for your hard work with our kids.  They had a blast and learned so much! Thank you again!  Without your choreography, it would not have been anywhere near as good a show! Especially the nightmare scene! My plans were SO BAD!  You saved that number” 

-Dave, High School Drama Teacher
