Momentum Dance in Kalamazoo: Inspiring a Lifelong Love of Dance

Momentum Dance Studios, located at KidsSports USA in Kalamazoo, is proud to offer a wide variety of exceptional dance classes! Yearlong classes in ballet, tap, jazz, hip-hop, modern, and gymnastics combo are offered for students beginning at age 3. At Momentum, we strive to educate and inspire our students with a life-long love of dance as performance art. Momentum dancers learn how to dance while building self-esteem and having fun in our unique recreational and newly competitive environments. The year ends with a dance recital to demonstrate what students have learned.

The year-end dance recital takes place in June at a local high school auditorium complete with a theme, stage lights, sound, and a technical crew. Students participating in the recital practice at a dress rehearsal, purchase costumes, and perform several dances on stage – giving them a true performance experience. Professional photographs and videography of the recital are also available.

Pre-ballet and gymnastics combo classes provide a fun and creative introduction to dance. Classes will include a short warm-up with gentle stretching, learning basic fundamentals of ballet and gymnastics technique, learning to take turns across the floor, developing balance and rhythm, and encouraging creativity through imaginative exercises.


Ballet is the basis for many other forms of dance. Ballet classes are taught with the focus on proper technique and the use of correct terminology. In addition to increasing technical proficiency and strength, dancers will work on musicality, grace, and self-expression. Ballet classes are strongly recommended for all dancers looking to be successful at any style of dance.

Tap and jazz classes work on style and technique with strengthening turns, leaps, and other tricks. These classes include warm-ups with stretching and strengthening exercises, across the floor combinations, and time to learn and practice choreography.

Hip-hop classes are fun and funky classes to get your body moving! Classes begin with warm-up and stretching and move on to combinations with the newest choreography. Energy, enthusiasm, and freedom of expression are the keys to learning this style of dance.

Lyrical dance classes combine ballet and jazz for a special style and presentation. This class introduces the concepts of contraction and release, fall and recovery, the use of different levels, and special awareness. Improvisational work may also be included, which will let each dancer explore her or his own unique movement qualities.

Acro dance is a style of dance that combines classical dance technique with precision acrobatic elements. We fuse together ballet, floor gymnastics, jazz and lyrical tricks for a unique style. Flexibility, strength, unique choreography and grace are all important pieces of acro.

Performance group is a non-competitive performing group for dancers who are interested in extra training and performance opportunities. Dancers must also be enrolled in 2-3 other technique classes when doing performance group. This group performs a minimum of three times each year at community events, festivals, and parades. Dancers will have the opportunity to choreograph their own works for a Student Showcase in the spring.


Momentum Dance Studio’s Performance Company is a competitive group for dancers who are interested in extra training and taking their dancing to the next level.
