2019 Trip To Armenia!

Artistic Motion proudly invites dancers ages 11-Adult with strong previous dance training to join us on the summer dance experience of a lifetime. Tentative dates for this trip are June 16-30, 2019. We have joined with Armenian Choreographic Dance College in Yerevan, and other professional dance teachers and other dance companies to provide intensive dance training to American and Armenian dancers. The goal of this exclusive two week exchange program in Yerevan is to bring US dance students and teachers to Armenia in order to work in unison with instructors and dancers from Armenia and Russia. In Yerevan, instructors from both countries will give joint classes to all of the participants. Students will have the chance to tour historic Armenia and take part in guided discussions about the history of the two countries, both as it pertains to dance, and greater geo-political issues.

Professional Performances

You will learn through "doing" at Artistic Motion. You'll not only benefit from a strong technique-based curriculum, you'll have many opportunities to perform.

Each semester we showcase your talent. Student work is presented in Open Classes at the close of the fall semester. Spring semester culminates with an on-stage experience in our popular, fully staged, professional performances. These original productions are open to the public and usually sell out!

Other Opportunities for Professional Growth

If you are a highly-motivated dancer age nine or older, you may be eligible to audition for Artistic Motion's own Dance Company. As a member, you'll participate in an extended weekly class with other dancers who have similar goals. You do not have to be an Artistic Motion student to participate, but we do require previous dance experience.

Our strong Master Class series brings in guest artists from all over the world who have expertise in a variety of genres. These enhanced programs are another way you can study your discipline of choice at the highest level possible.
