About The Movement
A dance/fitness/kenpo karate studio that offers a variety of classes for a variety of people both young and young at heart. Our classes vary from Ballet to Body Sculpt, Hip Hop to Club Dance Cardio, as well as instruction in A.K.K.A. Karate. *NEW! We now also offer guitar and vocal lessons for children and adults! Our partner theatre company, Footlight Productions, does musical theatre productions throughout the year!
We are a family owned and operated facility with the VISION to provide MOVEMENT for the whole family under one roof. So you could be taking one of our many fitness classes while one child is next door taking karate, another taking dance and the youngest is playing in our PlayZone.
The possibilities are limitless, but our mission is simple; to provide high quality, fun-loving instruction with an emphasis on a whole body, whole mind, whole family approach that will enhance your life and overall feeling of confidence, strength and well-being.

Sasha began her career as a professional dancer traveling the world dancing for major cruise lines and was represented by a top talent agency in Los Angeles. When she met her future husband she decided to finish college and not only marry him, but also marry her passions that consumed her life; dance, fitness and health. She graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of Arizona with a Bachelor of Science in Health Education and a Minor in Dance. She is a registered 200hr yoga teacher and a personal trainer and has coached competitive dance for over 17 years. Together, Sasha and Ben envisioned a place that would allow their talents to flourish and their desire to make an impact to as many people as possible while maintaining the balance of their little family (Lela & Eldon) and so...The Movement was born.
