Momentum is a boutique dance studio and home of the three time national award winning competitive company. MDC prides itself on intimate sized classes focusing on each dancers strengths and goals. Every dancer is worked with individually to help them achieve ultimate success in their dance training. The Company consists of seven core companies Breakthrough, 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, 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 Woyach, the founder of Momentum's goal for creating Momentum Dance Company was 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! It has been Betsy's life long dream to provide an inspiring new opportunity for dancers. Momentum has become a safe haven for early artists to hard working trained dancers from Santa Barbara, Carpinteria and Goleta.
Momentum Dance Company provides quality dance training in a positive, passionate, and nurturing environment. Through competitive performances and unique experiences, our dancers learn essential life skills such as self-esteem, teamwork, responsibility, respect, and accountability. We strive to make the Momentum experience a memorable one that will help mold our students, preparing them to be successful in their personal endeavors.
