Arts in Motion has been offering quality dance classes in St. Louis since 1993. Our highly trained staff is passionate about teaching and it shows.

Arts in Motion is a unique dance school where dance technique, artistry, and community come together. We work tirelessly to create a safe, genuinely supportive, and highly creative atmosphere where students of all ages and skill levels can discover or re-discover dance as a positive force. Our school will always encourage students to free themselves of inhibition, learn more about themselves and others, and fully experience the art of dance.

We offer a wide curriculum of dance classes to suite St. Louis area students of any age or experience level, including children's creative movement, ballet, modern, jazz, tap, and pointe. We also offer sessions of specialized dance classes including choreography and improv, partnering, adult dance, Zumba, and yoga.  Classes at Arts in Motion are joyful, potent, diverse, and reflect each teacher's passion for movement, education, and individual artistic background.

Arts in Motion faculty members are highly experienced and specifically suited and educated for the classes they teach. Our programs are designed for students who wish to fully experience movement and the art of dance.
