The Verve Contemporary Dance Center is creativity-based! Our students are 100% part of the creative process - making up dances, and building confidence and creativity along the way.
We place a huge emphasis on dancers' mental health and emotional well-being. We always lift and encourage, rather than compare or compete.
Every year, we perform a series of community shows to promote 'suicide prevention,' 'child abuse prevention,' and 'mental health awareness' (see video posted below). This is one of the many ways that we give back to our community.
Modesty is very important to us. We teach that the body is the instrument in creating art... not a mode for getting attention. Wholesome music and dance. Period.
Come dance with us! We offer affordable classes for all ages and levels!
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
I love The Verve because it gives me a place to "just dance." There is no judgement and I am free to move the way that I want to. I love The Verve because it feels like a safe haven. I am free to just be me.
VERVE PARENT, WINTER 2018
When my daughter switched from ballroom dance, to contemporary, I was a bit nervous, because I felt like up until your performance last night, most contemporary pieces that I had seen have portrayed struggle, heartache, and they've mostly been about being broken. It has always felt like the same story to me... BUT last night the dances showed hope, and light, and strength, and all the stories were about something different. It was beautiful! Thank you!
I love The Verve because I feel no pressure to be perfect, and I can "just dance." Before, dance used to be like a sport to me... but thanks to The Verve it has become so much more. Dance has become my release and a way to express myself.
