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 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.

For all the ladies in the place with style and grace

This one’s for you. Our programs use 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:

  • checkMusic
  • checkStyle
  • checkMovement
