Our Work

    Quality Performances for Creative Audiences

 

Founded in 2016, by Artistic Director Destine Young, Ground Rhythm Dance Project produces work heavily grounded in the values & cultures of the urban dance community. As we strive to diversify the aesthetics of what modern contemporary dance is known to be, our vocabulary is not limited to the artistic values of any one style; however it largely embraces the cultural and physical aesthetics of Hip-hop Dance, Martial Arts, and other Contemporary Dance forms.

Collaborators

                             We are an interactive professional dance company comprised of artist/educators who introduce dance

                                               performance in innovative ways to engage students, audiences and communities.

open SESSIONS

The ground rhythm method

Join us for Open Sessions (Postponed until further notice) Updated Class Schedule coming soon! MVMT Dance Studio - FALL 2021

Our artistic methodology and practices render a unique approach to generating movement. The Ground Rhythm Method introduces a movement hybrid that is influenced by martial arts, urban and contemporary dance vocabulary, while highlighting the use of rhythmic variation, somatic breath techniques, partnering. improvisation, and decision-making. This universal approach to movement establishes and develops one's ability to understand, engage and connect with the art of dance.

Class - $7 student | $10 gen/pro
