Our Focus
 

Community- Momentum and MCREW provide opportunities for dancers to be engaged with their peers here at the studio and develop meaningful friendships. This includes our very special Big/Little Sister (or brother) program where company dancers are paired with an older or younger company member for positive role models and mentorship. 

 

Ministry-  Momentum and MCREW dancers have the privilege of performing throughout the community several times over the course of the season, as well as some volunteer service opportunities. They also have the fun of a mid-year filming event as another way to impact our community through sharing our dances over social media. 

 

Discipleship- Intentional discipleship is an important piece of our company and MCREW rehearsal times, getting into God’s word and giving dancers space to share prayer needs, as well as pray with and for one another. Dancers are also invited to join us in Orlando for the Dance Revolution conference, which is an incredible weekend for the dancer's soul, mind, and body (required for level 3+ company dancers).

What is Momentum Company?

Momentum is an auditioned group of Maranatha’s most committed dancers who are wanting to increase their training and have more performance opportunities while building lasting friendships, serving our community, and experiencing growth in their relationship with Christ. Company members work on choreography pieces throughout the year, and are expected to serve as leaders and set a positive example in the studio. Technique classes and company rehearsals emphasize the importance of excellence in dance training as well as in personal character. Any dancers in our leveled/teen programs are invited to audition!

What is MCREW?
MCREW is our newest extension of Momentum Company. Heading into its fourth season, we are bringing a fresh face to the world of Hip Hop! MCrew is open to all middle and high school dancers in our hip hop program. **New this year… MCREW JV!!! JV is a Hip Hop crew made up of our younger budding artists! All dancers taking a Primary Hip Hop class are eligible to audition!
