Motion Fever Performance Troupe

 MOTION FEVER PERFORMANCE TROUPE is a dance team dedicated to enriching the performance experience of its team members.

It is a wonderful opportunity for dancers to further develop their technique in a supportive team atmosphere.

The Performance Troupe learns various pieces of choreography throughout the year, and performs at community events such as the Farmers Market, Moscow’s Downtown Trick or Treat Event, Light Up the Night, Vandal half-time performances, and other seasonal events.

Being part of a performance dance team has many personal benefits, some of which include:

  • You and your teammates will encourage the best in each other
  • Teamwork will become your mantra
  • The skills you develop will help you for the rest of your life
  • You’ll get the chance to connect with, and serve, your community
  • You’ll get to keep dancing—and growing—beyond class
  • You’ll have many “once in a lifetime” experiences
  • You’ll develop skills in how to be a role model
  • You’ll see first hand that hard work pays off
  • You’ll become part of a sisterhood
