Tioga Town Center Welcomes Momentum Dace Arts


Momentum Dance Arts to join dynamic tenant mix at Award-Winning Tioga Town Center.


Gainesville, Fla. — Locally-owned Momentum Dance Arts will soon be joining Tioga Town Center, and will offer all styles of dance classes for all ages, from children to adults. Their new 1,786 square foot space will be located at 133 SW 130th Way, Suite D, Newberry, FL 32669.

Striving “to build confidence, discipline, and appreciation for the arts, one dancer at a time,” Founder and Owner Jamie Perez is, herself, a lifelong dancer who also believes “dance is passion.” Jamie has been teaching for nearly 20 years, and has created a loyal following since opening Momentum Dance Art’s first Studio in Alachua in 2016. Since then, they’ve continued on their mission to create a nurturing, judgement-free environment where people of all skill-levels can enjoy the art of dance.

Momentum Dance Arts aims to foster a lifetime of love for dance and fitness for everyone. The new Tioga Town Center location will offer a variety of dance genres for children as young as two years of age. The new Dance Studio will be equipped with a professional sprung dance floor, tumbling equipment, a state-of-the-art sound system, ample mirrors, Ballet barres, and more. Their new location aims to provide the perfect environment to focus on the development of the whole child with a focus on their health, flexibility, and grace all through dance.

“We are so pleased the Momentum Dance Arts will soon be joining our Town Center,” said Cheryl Carroll, Regional Asset Manager for Hankin Group. “We’re confident this new addition to Tioga will be a great fit for all the nearby residents and families to enjoy.”

Momentum Dance Arts will be open Monday through Thursday afternoons and evenings to start. Classes range from 30-minute sessions to an hour. Styles of dance will include, but aren’t limited to Tap, Jazz, Acrobatics/Tumbling, Theatre, Hip Hop, Contemporary, Ballet, in addition to Creative Movement & Tiny Tot classes for ages 3-5 year old.

“I’ve been wanting to open a dance studio at Tioga Town Center for the longest time, and heard a similar sentiment from many of my friends, and clients,” said Momentum Dance Owner, Jamie Perez. She added “The close proximity to so many families, and the vibrant sense of energy in this active community makes Tioga the best choice for our next location.” Momentum Dance Arts will be offering all-inclusive pricing programs, free trials, sibling discounts, and are already accepting registrations online, via phone, or in person at their existing Alachua location. They plan to open their new Tioga Dance Studio February 1, 2022, and welcome all to come out and give their child the gift of dance. They’ll also be hosting an Open House on Jan 25 & 27! Registration is now open for ages 2-18 – All Styles of Dance: Jazz, Tap, Ballet, Contemporary, Musical Theater, Hip Hop, Tumbling, and more!
