Movement Arts Dance Academy To Offer Free Classes

Students from Movement Arts Dance Academy have been busy over the past several months, participating in competitions and events throughout the state. They have also worked in the studio, finishing the school year with their sixth annual recital, “Games People Play.”

The competition and performance group, Synergy Dance Ensemble, under the direction of Kelly Todd Grandusky, attended two local competitions in the spring. In addition, the students performed at the Palm Beach Zoo, CityPlace, the South Florida Fair and the Royal Palm Art & Music Festival.

Six of the dancers recently returned from Dance Theatre USA’s Grand Prix National Finals in Orlando, where they competed and participated in convention classes.

In preparation for the studio’s seventh year, open houses and free classes for returning and prospective students will be held Saturday, Aug. 17 and Tuesday, Aug. 20. Regular classes will begin Thursday, Aug. 22. The schedule of classes can be found at

New students wishing to find out more about the studio, or to register, should visit the web site or call the studio at (561) 792-9757 for more information.
