about the program
Students in the year-long program have Momentum class once a week in their school gymnasium. Two teachers and a piano accompanist engage the students in movement, music, and choreography, using dance to teach self-discipline, teamwork, and excellence through positive reinforcement, encouragement, and engaging children to think creatively. They concentrate on “The Big Four”, which are “do my best, work hard, never give up, and be healthy.”
“The Big Four”
The Year-End Performance is the culminating event that displays the hard work and dedication of more than 850 students performing on a professional stage in front of a live audience. The theme of the show is integrated in the Momentum curriculum from the very first day of the school year. Past show themes include; Imagine, about John Lennon, The Beatles, and the 1960s; Wonderful Einstein, about Albert Einstein and the power of imagination; One World, One Water, about our global water crisis and the environment; and many more.
