Since its founding, EPIC Motion has placed and won several east coast hip-hop dance competitions, most recently awarded 2nd place at Pride 5 Dance Competition with our Fall 2012 set. As a growing company, we continue to seek ways in which we can give opportunities to dancers of the New York community.
As we enter the Spring 2013 season, we are excited to announce a huge change. Rather than focusing on developing a competition set, EPIC will focus on individual training and growth as dancers, choreographers, and leaders. Our goals this season are to perform at venues and events in New York City and ultimately host our own professional quality showcase. Thus, although EPIC Motion will not be a competing company next season, we hope this change will give us the freedom to reach a new level.
Follow this blog to stay updated on our journey and any news we may have this season including our upcoming auditions, performances, and more.
Please join us as we showcase our Fall 2012 Performance Set for our friends and family in the Manhattan area. After months of hard work our 2012-2013 season has proudly produced an amazing set that most recently took Second place at the Pride Dance Competition in New Jersey.

We will be accepting donation the day of the showing. As an independent team, our seasons our funded by the dancers themselves as well as a limited budget. Any contribution you may be able to make is appreciated and we thank you in advance for your continued support.

Please register here for a time slot to ensure admittance.
The best feeling in the world is seeing all of your hard work finally come together. We had some major challenges in the process of putting this set together, the biggest being Hurricane Sandy closing down our studios for a week, but we pushed through as a team and placed SECOND at the Pride 5 Dance Competition this past weekend.
A big thank you to everyone on the team for staying committed and helping this vision come to life. Another big thank you to all of our fans for your continuous support. We hope you enjoy!!
After tirelessly working through the night (literally) we’ve finally finished our newest website and have it up and running! Welcome to the newest version of EPICMotionDance.com. Introducing our current season of dancers, our new site has everything you need to know about our dance company. We’ve also introduced a blog feature to our site where we’ll be keeping you up-to-date about events, workshops, performances, etc. so keep checking our site for updates!
With the madness that was Hurricane Sandy finally gone we’re really beginning to see the aftermath the storm has caused and how it will be affecting our daily lives for the next few days/weeks as clean up begins and we all try to return to our normal lives. The storm has put EPIC on hold as many of us are still without power, water or transportation as the subways are on lockdown until further notice.
While there’s a lot that we can be complaining about but thankfully everyone in the EPIC Family is safe.
Hope everyone else affected by the storm is now safe and sound.
