They have entertained for the St. Louis MUNY Theatre, the Disney Corporation, “Legends” in Las Vegas and Branson, and on the St. Louis Fox Theatre stage in the Les Grands Ballets Canadiens and the Joffrey Ballet production of the “Nutcracker.”
Dance Force is a youth-oriented company providing serious students of dance an opportunity to develop and foster a love for artistic expression through movement.
Company members will also have a chance to hone their performing skills as well as learn the meaning of cooperation and responsibility as they interact with their fellow company members and choreographers to bring to the stage well-rehearsed and entertaining dance and acrobatic numbers.
Motion Express Dance Force Choreographers are: Tanya Shea, Natasha Jansen, Caitlin Leonard, and Jennie Galloway.
An important note about competitions
Motion Express is an award winning studio including top awards for performance, choreography, and artistry. With that said, our dance company emphasizes the performance and artistic side of dance, not just competition. We believe inclusiveness and artistry are more important than any awards.
