About Us

Mass Motion Dance Studios (MMD) was founded in Sturbridge, Massachusetts in 1983, under the direction of Terri Gordon. Ms. Gordon, a former member of the Boston Ballet Company and Tanz Forum, the modern dance company of Cologne, Germany, is passionate and driven to develop each student’s technique to its highest level. In 2003, MMD proudly announced the opening of MMD Boston under the direction of Irada Djelassi. In 2017, MMD Medfield opened it's doors under the direction and ownership of Irada Djelassi and Alexis Murphy.

At Mass Motion Dance we place our goals, values and focus on the art of dance and all that it offers the dance student. Dance allows us the opportunity for expression and a unique insight into the beauty of the world around us. Dance is one of the more challenging of the arts as it involves our total physical and mental commitment. Meeting these demands teaches the student many lessons and leads them down a path of self-discovery. In a world of technology and instant gratification, dance reminds the student that great accomplishments require time, patience, and courage.

Whether a student’s goal is fitness and recreation or a future career in dance, dancers will find classes that fit their objective as well as their schedule. Students may choose from a broad range of dance idioms such as ballet, modern, tap, contemporary, jazz, hip hop, acro, Irish step and more.
