Mission Statement


Stomping Ground Studio is excited to share our art form which we love so dearly. We want to connect with people who are curious about how their bodies move and how to move their bodies. We aim to facilitate a supportive environment where students of all skill levels are empowered to try new things. Movement arts of all kinds are therapeutic for the mind and body. Training in this art will help you get better sleep at night, release bent up energy, and overcome mental and emotional stressors, all while having fun, getting fit, and hanging out with friends.
