History:

Founded in May of 2001 by Alexandra Ferdinand, EnMotion began with seven dancers. The company now counts more than thirty adult and teen dancers in the Junior Company (13-18) and Adult (19+) Company. Both companies have performed at various venues in Massachusetts and as far as New York. EnMotion also offers courses for recreational dancers. EnMotion is proud to add color guard to its arts programs and will soon provide training in other art forms. EnMotion has been honored to perform at events that support cancer research, AIDS awareness, youth drug prevention, and more. In addition to supporting community causes, EnMotion has collaborated with local artists and musicians in the celebration of both music and performing arts.


Mission:
To reach train, and inspire a wide range of performers and performance audiences.

EnMotion is a performing arts organization that exists to develop the talent of experienced and novice performers. We have programs in hip-hop dance, color guard, and will soon expand to offer programs in other performing and visual arts.

EnMotion seeks to train students of all backgrounds for professional careers in the performing arts.
EnMotion believes that access to professional performing arts training should have no class boundaries. Our commitment to providing performing arts instruction in the inner city insures that the next generation of performers and people represent all of America. Towards that goal, dancers in pre-professional programs undergo rigorous training that instills discipline, self-esteem, and teaches members how to work as a team. In addition to physical training our dancers are mentored and are given the opportunity to take classes from professional dancers and individuals from the art industry who can inspire them toward their personal best.

The success of EnMotion depends on the efforts of each performer. With that in mind, we encourage all our performers and participants to contribute their skill as part of their professional development. As company members become more skilled, they are invited to choreograph, design costumes, or to offer other expertise. We believe that as our performers grow professionally, so does EnMotion.

EnMotion seeks to inspire in others a personal appreciation and enjoyment of performance art.
Professional or not, EnMotion believes everyone should have the opportunity to experience the joy of the performing arts. In addition to training professional and pre-professional dancers, the company also offers classes for the recreational dancer. The Training Program gives individuals of all ages and skill levels the opportunity to discover the joy of dancing. In addition to offering dance classes, our participation in community events and in professional shows and competitions allows EnMotion to bring its empowering and inspirational performances to diverse causes and communities. In these ways, we hope to share with others the exhilaration we experience on stage.


What people are saying about EnMotion:

"EnMotion is an amazing talented group of young individuals who strive to bring awesome entertainment to their audiences. They are easy to work with to coordinate any event including fundraisers and community events. I hired them for a fundraiser for the American Stroke Association. They were very organized, prompt and gave a very outstanding performance. Everyone was talking about them for the rest of the night. I highly recommend EnMotion for any event! They are a unique and artistic group of performers.
