The experience of working and performing with professional ballerinas is often a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for aspiring dancers. Former Somerville NJ Gotta Dance student Hillary-Marie Michael, now director of Jersey Tap Fest, says, “From start to finish … it is an excellent way for dancers to understand both the discipline and fun involved in a professional ballet production.”

Gotta Dance’ philosophy is to develop young dancers physically, mentally and artistically. The studio challenges, trains and inspires to create professional young dancers. Helping a dancer find the perfect rhythm of the music and making art with their body is the goal. Dancers gain performance experience at the annual dance concert at Raritan Valley Community College. Advanced dancers are offered exceptional opportunities to perform in Moscow Ballet’s Great RussianNutcracker during their New Jersey tour stop. Challenging auditions are held for positions in the Dynamite Dance Team and Showstoppers Dance Company. Additionally, students are recognized and awarded for their excellence in National Dance Week Syllabus Exams. The studio offer specialized classes in ballet, jazz, hip-hop, preschool dance, Street Funk, tap, pointe, variations, partnering and modern.
