Art of Movement is a touring dance convention with a few new twists. Our state of the art format provides an innovative design furthering each dancer’s personal journey through continuing dance education. AOM endeavors to reinforce the benefits each dancer can take home from a convention weekend. Our convention inspires dancers through a challenging dance curriculum, extensive learning opportunities and valuable insight provided by our renowned teaching staff. On top of the elite instruction platform, AOM seeks to bolster each dancer’s confidence by providing an enjoyable and supportive environment designed to encourage one’s unique self-expression.
We will be touring 7 US cities for our 2017-2018 tour. Each event will include two full days of workshop featuring convention-style classes. In addition to the challenging dance instruction schedule, AOM is proud to include bonus classes on Friday evening at no additional charge.
ART OF MOVEMENT is “bringing the heART back to dance”!
We hope you join us on our path to creating the best dance convention experience for all dancers.
Art of Movement’s cutting-edge workshop design offers challenging dance training by distinguished instructors with extensive backgrounds in their chosen genres. The majority of our classes are 1 hour and 15 minutes long, allowing an optimal time for quality instruction ensuring dancers truly get the most out of each class. We feel the dancer’s weekend should be structured for intensive training and superior education in order to acquire the valuable insight each instructor has to offer. We are also committed to providing students a safe and nurturing environment where they feel inspired and rejuvenated eager to take on their following dance week and impending competitive season. Unfortunately, many times when dancers leave a convention weekend they are exhausted and beat up from the hours and crazy schedule they have endured. Art of Movement is here to change that negative outcome!
It is our sincere desire that the Art of Movement changes the way dancers view competition at conventions. Through our novel competition design we encourage individual style, fresh and expressive choreography and a display of both talent and training. Our competition series offers entries for a variety of dance routines from solo to small group and the studios’ large ensemble numbers. For group numbers, we will be hosting a full Artistry Showcase that includes top level critiques and an elite adjudicated scoring system. Art of Movement aims to provide this solid feedback to help bring about an understanding on what to improve upon for the upcoming competition season. Along with our Artistry Showcase, AOM will be hosting a full Solo Scholarship Competition. Our Solo Scholarship Competition encourages elite dancers to enter their solo routines to compete at the highest level for a chance to be selected to receive amazing scholarships to Joffrey West Summer, Art of Movement Summer Intensive, Orlando Ballet Summer School, In Studio’s Summer Session, and more to be announced.
