7 Movements Dance
Our dance studio is focused on dance education and fostering a love of dance for ages 3+, beginner to advanced. As dance is a performance art form, we bring opportunities to perform in a non-competitive environment. Each dancer builds their skills in a nourishing environment, fostering the development of each child individually through small class sizes and highly experienced teachers.
We integrate ballet into all levels of our program, appreciating the importance of proper ballet technique as the building block of every style of dance. Our dancers also study tap, jazz, musical theater, pointe, contemporary/modern and hip hop.
7 Movements Dance is built on the philosophy and curriculum of Barbara Lotsberg of Barbi Lee Dance, updated with a fresh and new perspective. The curriculum is a proven progression to develop well rounded dancers, as well as the whole child. Students cultivate a sense of self esteem, responsibility, teamwork, time management and an appreciation for music and the arts.
We are a non-competitive dance studio, allowing students to learn many dances through the year, rather than just a few competition routines. We explore many styles of dance and the quality of movement, and avoid focusing on the "tricks" often found in competitions. When our advanced dancers have a strong interest in competing, we create a competition team for that group of dancers. Class sizes are small to allow for individual attention, increased participation and better communication.
