About Manhattan Motion's Unique Program:
Gabrielle, aware that New York's big "dance factories" geared most of their classes towards the accomplished and professional dancer, found her niche by tailoring her program to meet the needs of those students not as advanced. She offered workshops in Jazz and Tap from basic to intermediate levels, and hired dynamic, caring teachers that helped students gain the physical and mental confidence needed to dance better. In addition, she welcomed into the program those wishing to dance purely for fun, fitness and health.
There are over thirty group classes offered a week, private lessons in just about any technique a student requests, plus optional performance opportunities in periodic studio showings as well as a more elaborate annual student show.
About the Group Classes:  Various level group classes are offered in Jazz, Funk Jazz, Pop Jazz, Rhythm Tap, Theater Tap, Hip Hop, Ballet, Salsa, Belly Dancing, Ballet Stretch, Ballroom, Cardio/Conditioning as well as nutrition lectures. These classes concentrate on offering fun, challenging and personal instruction to all students so they can gain confidence and dance better.
About Private Lessons: Private and semi-private lessons are arranged by appointment, making every effort to accommodate the specific needs of each individual. Instruction may include anything from teaching the basics to a new student, coaching movement for an audition or choreographing a dance for a performance or wedding. "If you don't see what you want on the schedule, ask at the front desk.  Our versatile and knowledgeable teachers will most likely know the style you're looking for!"
"Whatever your needs and reasons for adding dance and fitness to your life, consider us at Manhattan Motion Studios committed to bringing you, the student the highest caliber classes available in a challenging, caring and personal environment!"
Studios are available for daytime dance rehearsals, acting rehearsals and special short-term workshops only. Sunlight and a great view.
