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.
