Welcome to O’Callaghan Moves

Our Dance Studio


 Become the mover you are meant to be 

Colleens Open Classes are Held at Namba performing arts space in downtown Ventura. This serene and beautiful Boutique space invites artists from all genres  to participate with classes and performances. 

First-Rate Instructors



All classes offered by O’Callaghan Moves -Ballet technique, Pointe/Variations, Yoga, Floor Barre and more,  are designed for EVERY student. No matter their age, level or background.  

The ever elusive mind-body connection, is elevated  to become  aware of the subtleties of correct  alignment. Just  lying on the  back without fighting gravity, will help us find the natural alignment  of the spine, in relationship with our neutral pelvis.  Cultivating an  awareness of the breath, whether we are moving or completely still, will  help us to work with this correct alignment more efficiently. 

My hope is that we all find ways to become intrinsically aware of; “What we are doing while we are doing it”.  

The base from which we stand, sit, walk and lie down, all need to be executed in such a way that does not lead to injury:

Whether we are dancers looking for more turnout and flexibility;  the competitive athlete wanting more muscular balance and coordination;  or the EVERY person wanting to be at peace with a healthy heart, mind and body;  

The correct foundation for each person must be rooted in the truth of their alignment. 

Camps and Master Classes



The foundation for each dancer must be rooted in the truth of their alignment.
