MotionScoop Dance Academy was established in February 2018 by Marisabel Vasconez (ABT® Certified Teacher) in an effort to provide quality dance training in Queens, NYC. MSDA is like an ice cream shop, you choose the flavors of dance that you want to explore and we build your dance training around this. Mari hopes this process to be individual for each student, yet inclusive so that they encounter different points of view within a “dance class” and what it means in each genre.


At MSDA, we strive to provide quality and pre-professional dance training. This program is geared towards children that demonstrate an inclination towards the arts and are looking for a program that will guide them to explore and excel. We structure our classes with fun and productivity all while adding elements of technical training for a challenging, rigorous, and rewarding experience. Our instructors are highly trained professionals in their fields. This means that your dancers will receive the most modern and up-to-date dance education in the industry, guaranteed!

MotionScoop Dance Academy is proud to include the AMERICAN BALLET THEATRE® National Training Curriculum, a breakthrough 9 level program that combines high-quality artistic training with the basics of dancer health and child development. The ABT® National Training Curriculum consists of a comprehensive set of age-appropriate, outcome-based guidelines to provide the highest quality ballet training to dance students of all ages and skill levels. Pre-Primary through Level 5 will be taught by ABT® Certified Teacher, Mari Vasconez, who has successfully completed the ABT® Teacher Training Intensive in Pre-Primary through Level 5 of the ABT® National Training Curriculum.

Come learn the technique, discipline, and passion through the beautiful art of dance!




Ballet is the foundation of technical skills. It builds strength, correct alignment, flexibility, and the training needed to excel in other forms of dance. It all starts here!


We are sure that we have something to fit your needs. Whether it is Jazz Fusion, Salsa, Bachata, or other Latin styles of dancing. We explore the beautiful rhythms of the Latin and Hispanic culture in combination with technical skills. 


Our Acrobatics program is specifically geared towards a dancer's training and development. Combined with your regular technique and styled classes, this program adds an extra level of diversity to your dance training.


We offer private lessons for those that crave a one-on-one experience. Our services range from individual, couples, wedding choreography and small groups! Our lessons are catered  to your specific needs and genres or service of your choice: Salsa, Hustle, Bachata, Technique training, Contemporary, and more!
