Welcome to School of Groove.
Class is in session.

School Of Groove is a dance training and mentorship program dedicated to nurturing strong and confident young female dancers. We act as a bridge – connecting dancers to like minded peers, mentors and the larger dance community. Our mission lies in giving emerging talent a holistic approach to the learning experience and the tools they need in order to refine their practice and find success on their personal dance journey.

This one’s for you. Our 3 month long program uses urban and commercial dance techniques as a means to provide you with the skills and mindset to help you accomplish your personal dance goals, all while keeping the female voice in mind.  Our school-of-thought focuses on an in-depth understanding and application of the SOG pillars:
