We strive to create an environment full of the joy of dance. We have an inviting and loving community where dancers of all levels are welcome with a smile and an encouraging word. We believe dance class is a sacred time to celebrate our bodies. We encourage all dancers to find a place of self-expression while dancing. Many of us in our dance community have found that a multilevel healing can begin in dance class and we at GROOVITUDE DANCE vow to honor that awesome journey.
Everyone is welcome – ALWAYS.
Lisa and Mandy met in 2006 while working on a project together. They instantly connected as friends. They started to get together and create choreography together.
