Motion State Studios is one of the most prestigious 

competitive dance programs in the South Bay. Motion State director, Breeonna Fiamengo, created MSS in order to offer aspiring dancers high quality training and individualized guidance. The goal of MSS is to create a structured, yet fun learning environment to support dancers in reaching their full potential.

MSS offers an array of specialized dance training for dancers ages 6-18.  A dancer's weekly training in our program consists of ballet, jazz technique, stretch & strength, across the floor, choreography in multiple genres (jazz, contemporary, musical theatre, hip-hop), and improvisation. Motion State is proud to offer the highest caliber of dance education that young dancer's can receive here in the South Bay Area

  • What is different about Motion State compared to other dance studios?

    • MSS is a bit different than your average dance studio. Firstly, we offer no recreational/open classes. Our classes solely serve our dancers whom are committed to a MSS team. Secondly, MSS is more of a specialized, dance training program. Dancers are provided a personal-ized training schedule tailored to their age/level/ability. Thirdly, our class sizes and teams are capped much smaller than the average studio, which allows for maximized individual attention. Last but not least, we are solely a competition program and do not hold a showcase or recital. We believe this allows the dancers to focus in on class taking skills: improving technique, picking up choreography, and growing artistically. 

  • What programs are offered at Motion State? 

    •   For the 2020-21 season, we will be offering 3 different programs:

      • Petite Divison​ (age 6-8) ​​​The perfect starting point for young, eager dancers! We believe that learning the basics correctly from square one is key, which is why MSS is excited to offer this program new in 2020! The requirements? Just a genuine desire to dance and learn! Team members take 2 classes per week (Jazz/Technique and Ballet) + a 45 minute rehearsal for their competition routine. Petite division attends 3 competitions each season.

      • Mini Division (age 8-10) ​​​- The youngest portion of our pre-professional division. Mini dancers are required to take 6-7 hours of class per week (2 Ballet, 2 Technique, 2 Choreography, and 1 Stretch & Strength) + competition group rehearsals. Mini Division attends 3 competitions and 3 conventions each season.
      • Junior/Teen Division (age 11+) - Our most competitive, eldest member of our pre-professional division. Junior/Teen dancers are required to take 8-9 hours of class per week (2 Ballet, 2 Technique, 3 Choreography, 1 Progressions, and 1 Stretch & Strength) + competition group rehearsals. The Junior/Teen Division attends 3 competitions and 3 conventions each season.

  • I'm interested in my child joining Motion State! Where do I begin?

    • Every dancer gets started with Motion State through a scheduled, private evaluation. An evaluation is essentially a 30 minute private lesson where an instructor can properly assess your child's ability, skill level, and focus. If we feel your child is a good fit for MSS, we will notify you and proceed with scheduling classes and/or private lessons if need be.  Typically we accept evaluation inquiries between the months of March and June for the following dance season. MSS does not hold a traditional try-out or audition; the private evaluation in lieu of this.
