Movement Arts Studio

Raised by 1 person in 11 months
My name is Tiffany and I am ready to carry out my dreams of opening up a studio. I have been dabbling in various forms of body movement ever since I was a child. I was a collegiate cheerleader for both undergrad and grad school, and traveled throughout the US to teach middle school and high school students cheerleading and tumbling skills. My movement background extends to being a well-seasoned practitioner and certified yoga and acroyoga teacher. I absolutely love what movement has done for my body and I love being able to share my passion with others. My career also extends to being a Masters level Mental Health Clinician. Thus, emphasizing my love and passion for helping others.  

The purpose of my business is to create a community where different forms of body movement are available to the general public. My vision is to create a community where play, creativity, and diversity is appreciated and celebrated. I believe that community and connection are both important aspects of human development. The goal is to inspire students of all ages, shapes, sizes, backgrounds, skill levels and abilities to improve their physical, emotional and mental health by increasing physical activity, establishing and maintaining new connections, building self-esteem and trust, and stepping out of ones comfort zone in a safe place. My goal is to provide high quality instruction in a safe, supportive and nurturing environment, while balancing a level of challenge and success.  

            I became involved with different forms of body movement because it was always something that made me feel good. Not to get too emotional and try to win you over with a soppy childhood story, but I will say that I went through a lot of emotional and physical abuse. The physical abuse was the least of my worries, but the emotional abuse was what scarred the most. I never felt good enough in every aspect of my life. Once I got involved with yoga and now different types of acrobatics, my life completely changed. Of course training and working for what you want plays a part in feeling more confident and competent, but it is also about the community, social connections and a feeling of belonging. About 80% of yoga and circus communities I have been a part of have been welcoming, loving, and accepting. My goal is to be that community for this area of New Jersey.

All of the lovely donations I receive will be used to help me open up a movement arts school in New Jersey. I will be offering a variety of classes including partner acrobatics, tumbling, aerial silks, lyra, latin dancing, and trapeze. Classes will be available for both children and adults. I am striving to make this business successful and therefore would like to raise at least 25k, hopefully even 50k to not only assure security, but to also assure that I can provide services that I believe are best for the community. The space I am trying to rent out is in Pennington, New Jersey. It has a lovely yoga studio literally right next door! Talk about a win, win!

 It is a beautiful space, but does need lots and lots of renovations! The landlord is giving me 3 months to decide if I want to sign the lease so I am hoping to receive as much as I can in these next couple of months. If that space is not able to be patient with me, then I will move my dreams to another location in New Jersey. My goal is to get this place up and running in January 2018… starting the New Year with a bang!
