Spec-Chuan Movement & Arts, a community-based Dance Studio, was founded by Clive Barnes Award and Fred Astaire Award nominated dancer, Chuan (a.k.a. XiaoChuan Xie). We are located at 88-10 Whitney Ave, B, Elmhurst, Queens, walking distance from M/R/7/E/F, Q29/Q53/Q58. SCMA is dedicated to provide a wide range of movement-based creative/therapeutic practices to Jackson Heights/Elmhurst/Corona community—the most diverse neighborhood in the world, and create a safe/loving space for all dance/movement enthusiasts.
The Center is currently offering daily body conditioning classes, such as Yoga, Somatic Movement, Mindfulness, and Pilates (Mon-Friday) to help you build a strong and expressive body/mind (open to all levels of experiences, age 16+). We are proud to host World Dance Series (Cultural Dance) every Saturday morning to help all of us establish an embodied multicultural community (open to all experiences, age 10+). In the interest of building and cultivating the sense of community, we provide a non-judgemental and creatively safe space for ALL.
“All culture is dance and so is all human communication.”—Rudolf Laban
