Competition Program


The Movement Center offers an optional program for students who desire a stronger more disciplined class environment. It is designed for those students who exhibit natural dance or performance potential. These students need a strong desire to learn and improve, have good attention and concentration, take corrections willingly, and most of all, they must love to perform. It is equally Shopaholicsimportant they have a high level of family support.

Students accepted into this program must first be evaluated in several subjects by 2 to 3 of our competition instructors. They will be evaluated in such areas as technique, rhythm and timing, flexibility, jumps and turns, showmanship, learning potential, etc. Once accepted into the company, students will be assigned a level of curriculum. This curriculum will include various technique, as well as choreography classes. They will be required to attend these classes 2 evenings per week. During the year they may be required to attend extra practices on the weekends.

Our Competition Program Receives National Recognition

In January of 2004 our studio was selected as one of 50 studios
in the nation to be featured in an article published by Dance Spirit
Magazine. This article offered a special profile of studios that embody
the spirit of dance and highlighted each as “Making Moves at Competition”
We are extremely proud to have been selected as one of only three studios from Ohio.

Our Company consists of students between the ages of 4 to 20. Students will attend between 3 – 5 competitions in the spring. We also occasionally have performances at
local festivals, pageants, or talent shows.

Master Classes & Workshops

We love giving our students the opportunity to work with guest choreographers and frequently bring them into the studio for special classes with our company.
