About Us


Movement Dance Academy

has been crafting dancers since 1991 and is recognized as one of Monmouth County's most progressive, versatile, diverse and advance studios. Movement is located in the business district of Oceanport, and is under the direction of Lawrence Edwards.​

Lawrence expanded the academy and moved the dance studio to Oceanport  in 2015. He continues to carry out the traditions at Movement implemented by its original owner Caroline Lepore Quattrochi.

Performance Opportunities


At the conclusion of each academic year, Movement Dance Academy proudly presents its annual student recital. These shows are held at the Brookdale Community College Performing Arts Center, Lincroft. Financial requirements for participation in the student recitals include a costume for each class that a student attends  and reserved seating tickets for audience members.


Every December before the Winter break, Movement Dance Academy proudly presents its annual student Winter Showcase. These shows are held at Monmouth University's Pollack Theatre. The show has no financial requirements for participation. It is an informal performance and is open to immediate family due to the lack of space.
