Dance Motion

To learn about auditions for DanceMotion click here.

We created Dance Motion in 1987 with the goal of providing opportunities for the dancers at our school who wanted to excel beyond the recreational level of dance. Since then, it has become one of the Valley’s premiere youth dance companies.

Dance Motion has grown from 25 dancers in 1987 to a company of over 100 today. The company includes dancers ages 7 through 19 who are selected from hundreds of aspiring dancers through yearly auditions and regularly perform in professionally staged productions. We provide top-quality dance training, focused on technical excellence and performance skills.

Dance Motion Performing Company is committed to bring arts to the community. Our outreach performances and educational programs bring dance to thousands of people every year. Our Dance Access resident programs in public schools enhance curriculum through dance. Through our Arts in Education program, we give free performances to school children before most of our general audience productions.

We also work hard to give anyone who wants to dance the opportunity to do so. The Dance Motion Scholarship Fund provides the necessary funds to help dancers in need study with us.
