At Mass Motion Dance we place our goals, values and focus on the art of dance and all that it offers the dance student. The arts offer us, as a community, the opportunity for expression and a unique insight into the beauty of the world around us. Dancer is one of the more challenging of the arts as it involves our total physical and mental commitment, and challenges us in a way that is both exhilarating and exhausting. Meeting these demands teaches the dance student many lessons and leads them down a path of self-discovery.
