Momentum Dance Company
What is Momentum Dance Company?
Momentum is a group of dedicated dancers wanting to increase their training while developing leadership skills, building lasting friendships, and experiencing growth in their relationship with Christ. Members are held to high standards and are expected to serve as leaders and set a positive example. Technique classes and company rehearsals emphasize the importance of excellence in dance training as well as in personal character.
While most of the big festivals and large events that we typically participate in will not be happening this year, we are confident that there are still plenty of opportunities to invest in our community through dance and service projects.
For the 2020-2021 season, our focus will be on Community, Ministry, and Discipleship.
Community- Providing opportunities for the dancers to be engaged with their peers here at the studio, developing meaningful friendships, is an important focus this year. This includes the continuation of our Big/Little Sister program where company dancers are paired with an older or younger company member for positive role models and mentorship.
Ministry- Even with some performances canceled, there are still many ways that we can be involved in serving our city through various dance-related outreaches, as well as service projects. We also plan to work on several different pieces of choreography throughout the year that we will film and share on social media. We are also keeping in touch with our community partners, so we can be available for any performance opportunities that may arise throughout the year. We are still hopeful that some of our past outreach involvements may become available in the spring.
Discipleship- We are looking forward to dedicating a portion of our company rehearsal time to intentional discipleship. Getting into God’s word with the students and giving them space to share prayer needs, as well as pray with and for one another. Our theme this year studio-wide is the “One Anothers” in Scripture (love one another, forgive one another, pray for one another, encourage one another, etc). There are over 50, but we will pulling some out and going through them together as a group.

In light of the circumstances this year, we will not be requiring company members to attend. However, as of now, we still intend to attend as a studio.
