  • “Because of the work of Momentum, and more importantly, because of its mission, our city is filled with young people who received a step forward toward brighter futures because dance opened their hearts to the power of what is possible when working toward a goal, and opened their minds to the potential that lies within each of them.”

    –David Brown, Harmony Project
  • “There are kids I see in my office through a revolving door for discipline problems and I only call the parents for discipline conferences. When these parents see their child on stage they become the biggest cheering section because they’ve never seen their child succeed at something. Then they see them dance!”

    –Principal in a Columbus City School
  • “Momentum has changed my life in so many ways. I would not be a student at BalletMet if it were not for Momentum. It is like my safe space where I will not be judged...without Momentum I would not be as good as I could be.”

    –Eleeza, Advanced Momentum Student
