Dance - Play - Connect



Dance has been found to positively affect physical, mental, and emotional health and well-being. Plus, it's a blast! 

Our youth dance classes are created with your child's development in mind, and focus on learning basic dance styles while building self-esteem and confidence! Class sizes are small to ensure personalized attention in a quaint atmosphere. We currently offer classes for infants (and their adult) through teens.

Our adult movement classes are catered to movers with little to no dance experience! Whether your goal is exercise, building strength, socialization, or fun, these classes are for you! 


Play is learning in motion. Really, free play is such an important piece of childhood development! 

We have created different formats of play, which we believe foster opportunities to practice autonomy and independence as well as collaborating with others in a fun and creative way! 

Open Play is non-structured play time where children ages 6 months to 4 years can explore kinesthetic and soft play toys and structures. Whether by themselves or with friends, endless play possibilities await! 

Starting Monday January 8th we will be introducing age-specific open play! This will give children the chance to play with peers who are at a similar developmental stage. It's also a great opportunity for caregivers to connect!


With the hustle and bustle of everyday schedules, it is often difficult to catch up with friends, meet new like-minded individuals, or deviate from regimented routines.  Our goal is to provide a space for you to take time to re-connect. 

We offer groups and events that give individuals and families the opportunity to expand their circles and connect with others in a fun way!  

Follow us on Facebook, Instagram, or pop by the studio to hear about our monthly events

Looking to connect sooner? Join us for Walking Wednesday! This free, weekly event will allow individuals to get together, take a scenic walk around Barrington, and connect with others! All are welcome! 



Hi! My name is Jordan Rodrigues and I am the owner of Empowered Movement LLC!  As a dance educator, Mental Health Counselor, Dance/Movement Therapist, and new mom I wanted to create a safe and nurturing space for children and their families to dance, play, and connect!  Offering dance classes, play groups, mommy meet-ups, family events, and birthday parties I am hopeful this space will be a staple in our community to support social and emotional learning and connection for all members! 


"Our family loves Empowered Movement! We were interested in getting our two year old daughter involved in dance but it was hard to find a studio for toddlers. From the first class with Jordan our daughter was hooked! She has learned and grown so much under Jordan's teaching. Jordan is warm and welcoming to everyone who enters her studio. She is calm, capable and super sweet. Our daughter looks forward to dance class every week."
