Session Series

Our primary goal at LUVEN by The Goddess Movement is to offer a complete dance training experience.  One where you play in as many genres of dance as we can offer you.  This allows you to cross-train without having to commit to multiple classes or days of the week.  Just as every human in unique, so is this program!  You will be able to find new ways to express yourself and find yourself every single week, all while being supported and encouraged by your dance group community and our loving instructional team!

 

LUVEN can accommodate humans with absolutely no dance experience as well as ex-competitive dancers and performers.  Check out our group descriptions below. EVERYONE is a dancer!

LUVEN groups are as follows:

Beginner


Beginner group is for those with no or very limited dance experience.  The instruction for this group is focused on helping students connect with their body, learn the foundations of each dance genre and getting comfortable with learning the language of choreography.  A student can dance in this group forever if they choose, or shift into Intermediate B when they feel ready.

Intermediate B


Intermediate B is for dancers with some dance experience, either from the LUVEN beginner group or from other dance classes.  Technique in these classes will be open level including skills that are beyond basics.  A student can expect to be challenged in this group, but without the pressure of advanced choreography.  A student can dance in Intermediate B forever if they choose or can shift into Intermediate A if or when they feel ready.

Intermediate A


Intermediate A is for dancers with much previous dance experience, either from the LUVEN Intermediate B group or from other dance classes/training.  A student can enter this class for the first time at The Goddess Movement if they have previous dance training with us via LUVEN or through other years of studio/dance training.  This group will be challenged with intermediate/advanced genre skills, as well as skills that will require solid strength/mobility/conditioning.  This group will be expected to understand the language of choreography, how to receive it and express it confidently and with character.

Experienced


The Experienced group is for students who have had years of studio/competitive training and performance experience.  If you are a student who has training outside of The Goddess Movement, fit this group description, and have a desire to enter this group, please email to discuss your dance history. This is not the “top” of the LUVEN program, but rather a group where dancers can be challenged safely with respect to their extensive training and choreography language maturity.  This group will be challenged with advanced studio technique, dynamic group tricks, intricate choreography language, and strength and endurance.  It is expected that this group is a place to support the strengths of the individuals, but more importantly lean in to the support and elevation of the pride…not competition.
