THE MOVEMENT DANCE COMPETITION

We are The Movement. The inspiration for the name is two fold. First, dance is, obviously, movement. The founders of The Movement Dance Competition, with their over 30 years of cumulative experience as professionals in the dance world, looked at the competition world and noticed some thing, “The younger generation of dancers are getting really GOOD!” It is our observation and opinion that the dancers today, through the tireless efforts of the studio directors and dance teachers, in the industry. We have created dancers that are far superior technicians and “trickers” than we have seen in the past.
That has been the result of years of competition as well as the focus on technique and tricks in young dancer training. This has been amazing and pushed the envelope of dance as an art. And we have pushed that envelope to a point where we are moving into a new, “Envelope” that we can now explore and push, just as we have with, the technique and tricks aspects of dance

WHAT OUR DANCERS SAY

Authentic Accounts of Experiences at The Movement Events

PATTY JENS

I participated in The Movement's dance competition last year and was thoroughly impressed by the level of professionalism and insight provided by the judges. The Mini Master Critiques were not just evaluative but also constructive, offering specific pointers to refine my technique and deepen my emotional expression. The experience was both challenging and rewarding, pushing me to reconsider the 'Quality of Movement' in my routines. I look forward to returning this season and would highly recommend The Movement to any dancer seeking to elevate their craft
