Our Story

​​​For the past ten years, Owner Suzanne Mansfield has created a presence in the dance world as a renowned choreographer, program director and coach. Receiving such awards as the Cheer and Dance Extreme's "IEP Award" and being nominated for USASF "Dance Coach of the Year", Suzanne has lead her dance teams and programs to numerous national titles and world rankings at The Summit and The USASF Dance Worlds. 

In April of 2014, after being instrumental in building a previously successful and well-known cheerleading and dance gym, Suzanne opened Velocity Dance with a dream of an all dance facility that would not only foster talented and award winning dancers, but provide a safe, wholesome and positive environment that would lead to building successful young people.  In this short period of time Velocity Dance has quickly grown into the largest and highest performing all-star dance program in Virginia with 22 all-star dance teams and numerous studio dance and tumbling classes.  We are the ONLY all-star program in Northern Virginia to have two Summit National Championship titles, a Stage 8 Nationals first place, two coveted Gold Worlds Champion trophy as well as two silver and two bronze trophies at the USASF Dance Worlds.  Velocity Dance prides itself on creating outstanding dancers and fostering the growth of outstanding young people in the DMV.
