Arts in Motion Dance Studio at 6175 Jackson Rd., Suite B in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Here at Arts in Motion we treat all students with respect. We believe that dance should be accessible to all ages and ability levels. We encourage teamwork and cooperation. In our group dance classes our goal is to teach a love of the art of dance with an understanding of the theory and history behind it. We prepare students to explore their creativity and to perform with confidence. Adult Dance Classes (Ballet, Modern, Ballroom) are also available for teens and adults just wanting to get in shape or learn a new skill!

Why Take a Dance Class?

There are many benefits to taking a dance class—physical, cognitive, emotional, and social. Here are four of my favorites.

  • Confidence

    Dance builds the mind-body connection, promotes positive self-image and increases self-confidence. Dance teaches that if you work hard you can do anything! Young dancers learn to be independent and older dancers learn to shine in the spotlight.

  • Dance Class Teaches Teamwork

    At Arts in Motion we focus on working together to be the best dancers we can be. Each level of dance class is designed to be taken 2 years in a row so the older dancers are able to mentor and support the younger dancers. We believe that a dance performance is not about who is in the front row, but about cooperating to create a gift for the audience.

  • Dance Creates Life-Long Friends

    In dance class we share goals with each other. We struggle together and celebrate triumphs together. The friends we make in dance class can help us through transitional times like starting kindergarten, middle school or high school.

  • Fun!

    Dance Class Should Be Fun. Yes, we are learning and growing and challenging ourselves, but we also can let loose a little, express ourselves and be creative.

Thank you for all the memories!

Sadly, we permanently closed our doors on March 29th, 2021
