Lawrence continues to implement the traditions at Movement implemented by its original owner Caroline Lepore Quattrochi. Movement Dance Academy was located in Eatontown's old business district for over 20 years, but now calls Oceanport its home.

At the Movement Dance Academy, we believe that participation in dance instruction can influence a child for a lifetime. Classes are provided by the most qualified, educated, and certified teachers who enjoy inspiring and working with children and take such a responsibility seriously. From the beginner attending for the joy of movement to the pre-professional level, Movement can provide the environment appropriate for the student.
