Simple, High-Quality & Joyful Study of Dance


Why Choose MAA?

With all the choices that families and individuals have for dance training in a city as large as Atlanta, why should you choose Movement Arts Atlanta (MAA)? Here are three reasons to consider; we are not like the airlines, our classes are not childcare, this is not our first rodeo.

We are not like the airlines, we do not charge junk fees. MAA tuition includes all costs except dance clothes and shoes for the student. MAA does not charge registration fees. You are not asked to pay for being our customer. The costs related to student performances (costumes, theatre rental, tickets) are included in tuition. Performance are a part of the training experience, our product, so, why would you pay separately for this service.

There is a time and a place for childcare, but it is not dance class. All MAA classes are purposefully kept small. These small classes provide real, joyful training at any age. Time in a MAA class is about supporting the student, improving and inspiring. Real work gets done. FYI, these principals apply to our adult classes, too.

We have done this before and know that experience and training matter. Yes, even for the little ones. In fact, especially for the youngest students. MAA’s Director and primary instructor, Carolyn Stine McLaughlin, has more than 25 years of experience teaching, directing and choreographing. Dance is what she does. She studied teaching in college, danced professionally and has taken continuing education courses throughout her career.. She and her colleagues are always looking for ways to be better instructors.

We all have choices to make in life and at Movement Arts Atlanta, we choose to see what we do as a privilege and a profession.
