Momentum is a competitive dance company that trains and competes under the direction of Betsy Ann Woyach. The Company consists of MINI, PETITE, JUNIOR, TEEN, SENIOR and PRO Teams. Each team trains together in Jazz, Contemporary, Lyrical, Hip Hop as well as the opportunity to try Tap. Company members also have the option of competing with a solo, duet or trio, small group, or production number if he or she is invited by the director to do so.
Company members cultivate characteritics such as team work, goal setting, hard work, commitment and dedication. Competition is a step above a Performance Troupe as the company will be traveling outside of the community to be judged and awarded against other dancers in California. This is an incredible opportunity for dancers to meet, bond, and be inspired by other dancers, as well as create memories that will last a life time. Competitions provide dancers with constructive criticism and point out areas dancers can improve upon, outside from what their day-to-day instructors provide them with. It is a fresh perspective on dancing and keeps dancers "on their toes." The reward for all the hard work is incomparable.
Betsy’s goal for creating Momentum Dance Company is to inspire dancers to reach new levels in their dancing, set goals, build self-esteem, and demonstrate what it means to be part of a team! Betsy was a “competition kid” for 10 years and remained a choreographer and judge at competitive studios and competitions after she graduated from high school. Being a part of a competitive company taught Betsy how important her role was as a team player. It gave her something to be accountable for that she was passionate about and drove her to create goals at an early age. She hopes to do the same for the dancers of this community! It has been Betsy's life long dream to provide an inspiring new opportunity for dancers and is positive Momentum will be everything she ever dreamed of for the dancers of Santa Barbara!
