Why Choose Modern Movement?

We are proud to offer a family oriented, age appropriate dance studio that will build your dancer's confidence and self-esteem.  We strive to give each of our dancers not only proper dance technique and a love of dance, but also friendships, fun, and a sense of accomplishment.


Our smaller class sizes allow us to focus on each dancer to help him or her work up to their highest potential. 

With smaller classes, we're able to give each dancer the individual attention they need to strengthen the skills they already have, and to assist them with learning and perfecting new ones.


There are no hidden fees or extra work for you at MMDS. 

All fees are listed here on our website and given to you at the time of your registration. 

Better yet, we do the work for you!  We will provide you with all the items your child needs for our end of the year recital including tights, accessories, and more.


We keep dance a fun and positive experience! 

We only use age and family appropriate music, movements, and costumes to make each week, as well as our end of the year recital, enjoyable for all.


   Our beautiful, bright studios each have a viewing window which allows you to watch your child’s progression all year long.  Not only that, but you can watch their love for dance continue to grow each and every week!




At the end of each season, we bring our families a beautiful, professional, and well-organized dance recital

that allows our dancers to show off their hard work!




"Wonderful teachers and environment , we have done "mommy and me" (their version of it) and are now starting a 2-3 year old class and they are just great with the younger kids!!"

Julie, mother of Libby


"My 6 year old daughter has been dancing at Modern Movement going on 4 years now and we absolutely love it here! She has done tap, ballet, and hip hop. Mary Ann and Danielle have developed classes that are super fun, but that also focuses on teaching technique. My daughter has gained a love and passion for dancing because of MMDS!"

Nicole, mother of Maia


"My daughter will be starting her 3rd year at Modern Movement and I wouldn't even consider another dance studio. When my daughter first started here she was so shy and I was not sure if she would make it through the year, but with the attention the dance instructors gave her as well as the comfort they made her feel, she has now blossomed into a very outgoing little girl who is obsessed with dancing! There is nothing more she looks forward to all week than going to see Miss Mary Ann and Miss Danielle!! Thank you Modern Movement for all you have done!!!!

Renee, mother of Malia


“Modern Movement is a wonderful dance studio. My daughter has learned the foundations of dance and has been introduced to many different styles of dance. The owners and teachers are professional, experienced, talented, compassionate, and loving. My daughter loves going to dance class every week to learn new things, see her teachers, and spend time with all of her friends. I would recommend this studio to anyone!

Kristine, mother of Gianna


“My daughter is starting her 6th year of dancing here and I wouldn't have it any other way. Mary Ann and Danielle (the owners) are so passionate and dedicated and the kids absolutely love them!”

Jeanine, mother of Faith


"We have a 3 year old and 7 year old dancing and this will be our third year with MMDS. There is a real sense of family at MMDS. It’s so exciting to watch our girls dance and improve throughout the year especially the tiny tots. We all know that 3 year olds don’t have a ton of patience but the instructors do. It’s amazing how they get the little ones to pay attention and learn an entire dance routine. Looking forward to another amazing dance recital!!"

Carrie, mother of Sydney and Quinn


"Caroline has been dancing at Modern Movement since she was 2.5 years old! She is now 6 and loves having dance as a part of her life! My favorite thing about Modern Movement is the friends that both Caroline and I have made thanks to the wonderful atmosphere, Danielle and Mary Ann have established. It's not only about Dance, it is about friends and fun too!"

Pam, mother of Caroline
