Classics are designed to provide an outlet for students who would like to begin or continue their passion for dance. The Gold School provides students with the highest quality dance training allowing young dancers to reach their fullest potential. These classes provide flexible scheduling and open opportunities to dance for boys and girls ages 6 through high school.

Combo Classics & Hip Hop

Ages 7 – 18

Our signature Combo Classics Program allows dancers to attend one class a week incorporating the fundamental teachings of three different genres: Ballet, Tap and Jazz. We also offer One Subject classes where students may specialize in one particular genre (ballet, tap or jazz). All Hip Hop classes are 1-hour individual subject classes. Students are placed in classes based on their experience and are continually evaluated by our faculty to insure proper placement. The length of class time increases as the dancer progresses in age, interest, vocabulary and ability. In an environment that builds self-esteem and confidence, parents are assured their child will develop necessary life tools that extend far beyond the classroom.

Curriculum

Thoughtful guidance is given to every dancer by a diverse and unique faculty that cares.

Although technical classes include: Ballet, Modern, Jazz, Contemporary, Tap, Musical Theater, Hip Hop, Conditioning, Pilates and a few other things here and there, most students gain much more than dance training from Project Moves.

Our dancers are unique in their maturity; dancers demonstrate a respect for their art, their teachers and each other. By promoting excellence, passion and risk taking, this unique program provides a solid foundation for any young person, whether their future includes a career as a dance artist or not.

Project Moves currently nourishes the souls of nearly one hundred young artists from all over Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Connecticut.

Project Moves Primary

Ages 7 – 10*

Designed with a youthful spirit in mind this program is the cross roads between the Classics division and the MOVES program. Young dancers that demonstrate a natural sense of rhythm, grace, technical abilities and potential are placed in this program to train in a more professional classroom setting. In a caring, yet structured environment, the main focus is Ballet basics as well as proper training in Jazz and Tap.

Students study twice a week, 2 hours each day.

Project Moves Junior

Ages 10 – 13*

Dancers that excel technically with the passion, dedication and desire to pursue serious dance training are selected through auditions and class evaluations. Intensive ballet and modern (Horton and Limon technique) along with jazz and tap classes provide an unparalleled foundation for these young dance artists.

Students study 3-4 days weekly, 1-3 hours each day.

Project Moves Senior

Ages 13+*

Students considering dance at the college and professional level are immersed in the technical and performance training required by today’s leading universities, choreographers and companies. Students in this program develop the versatility to perform a range of work and learn the practices and principles needed for success as a dance artist.

Students study 3-6 days, 8-12 hours weekly.

*Ages may vary

Tuition

Full-time tuition ranges from $100.00 – $350.00 monthly as programs are specifically designed for the particular dancer’s needs.

Recent Project Moves Performances and Alumni

During the past few years the Project Moves Dance Company has had a very busy performance schedule appearing on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars, performing live in N.Y.C., Boston, and at The Fire Island Dance Festival, and bringing their message of acceptance and hope to high schools across New England.

The rigorous training, discipline, and professionalism our faculty instills in our students and the incredible performance opportunities unique to Project Moves has led alumni to The Juilliard School, The Ailey School, Tisch School of the Arts, SUNY Purchase, University of the Arts, Marymount Manhattan College, Point Park University, Princeton University, School of American Ballet, North Carolina School of the Arts, and to receive fellowships from the Baryshnikov Arts Center.

In addition to studying at these prestigious colleges and universities, many alumni are currently working in the most sought after dance roles and companies in the country. Alum Kenny Wormald starred as Ren McCormick in Paramount Pictures 2011 release of Footloose, 12-year-old Noah Parets stared as “Billy” in the national tour of Broadway’s Billy Elliot, David and Jacob Guzman are appeared in the Disney’s hit Broadway show Newsies, Katie Kozul and Jules Joseph can be seen with one of America’s leading concert dance companies Hubbard Street and both Kyle Robinson and Rory Freeman appeared in the national tour of the Shaping Sound Dance Company.
