Rhythm ‘n Motion
Under the direction of Debbi Sampson, Melissa Kraw & Brookke Rogers
Rhythm ‘n Motion is Pamelot’s community performance dance company. Rhythm ‘n Motion has been a part of Pamelot since the beginning. Our company members enjoy performing throughout the community at assisted living facilities, fairs and fesivals. R’nM wishes to give back to the community. Every December R’nM produces a review of dance and singing as a benefit in order to provide at least 3 local Auburn families that are in need with a full Christmas. Through volunteer and donations these families are gifted all Christmas presents, grocery and gas gift cards, and much more. It turns out to be our favorite time of year! R’nM dancer’s also travel to regional conventions and competitions. Many of our dancers have won high awards at competitions such as New York Dance Alliance, NUVO, JUMP, Spotlight and Headliners. During our company class we enjoy working as a team creating and choreographing dances in all genres. Our favorite genres to perform are Contemporary, Jazz and Musical Theater.
