What We Do
Arts in Motion teaches youth essential life skills through the medium of ballroom dance. Our approach is simple, if unconventional. We capture children during the school day – the whole class, whether they like it or not – and challenge them to learn a skill that can only be acquired if they work together. Constantly changing partners in the course of a lesson, everyone is part of the team; nobody is an outsider. Each of them demonstrates leadership, concentration, polite manners, persistence and a willingness to stumble on the way to achieving an impressive level of group professionalism.
