Motions Academy of Dance

Established in 2006, Motions Academy of Dance is a studio of performing arts offering a wide variety of classes for all ages and levels. 


Our Mission

At Motions Academy of Dance we want to share the art of dance with everyone. Our goal is to bring exciting and innovative teaching techniques into a professional learning environment. We are a family run business with generations of experience in our craft. With seasonal scheduling we strive to keep class curriculum fresh and current with a strong respect for classical training. 

Aside from our regular studio schedule, we also have performance and competition teams. These dancers not only attend their scheduled classes but participate in local performances and festivals throughout the year and attend at least two convention competitions a season.   

No matter the experience level we have something for every dancer at Motions. 

Let them praise His name with the dance; Let them sing praises to him...
— Psalm 149:3
