Art in Motion Dance Studio is a judgement free and very welcoming dance environment where you can discover the dancer in you. I love that they teach many different styles of dance. You not only learn the moves but the history/culture behind them as well. There is something for everyone here. – Michelle

What a phenomenal experience!! Nothing to be intimidated by, at all. This group of people are fabulous. I was in Jen’s class, and she is a wonderful, patient teacher. She walks you through each step, cheering you on the whole time! I will be a belly dancer in no time! – Ines

Art in Motion Pittsburgh, bringing you Wellness, Joy and Inclusivity through Dance.

WELLNESS. Healthy mind…healthy body. The physical benefits of weekly dance: de-stressing, better flexibility, a stronger body, are only one part of the totality of wellness. Dance class will uplift your spirit, boost your self-esteem and help you be the most confident, happiest version of yourself. YOU need wellness and peace of mind and body!

JOY, the feeling of elation and happiness, can often be elusive when confronted with the stress and strain of the daily grind. At Art in Motion PGH, we recognize that joy is the antidote to what ails us. Joy brings us happiness as well as also good health. Isn’t laughter the best medicine? Our classes are fun, dynamic and strengthening, building up your resiliency. The joy we feel in class carries over, and we find we can bounce back more easily to what life throws at us. YOU and your family deserve to be JOYFUL.

INCLUSIVITY. After the pandemic and even before (if we are being honest with ourselves), we all feel the need to be included, to be part of a community, a place offering connectedness and togetherness. We need human connection … we all want to feel safe, loved and cared for. Our studio offers this power to YOU. You and your loved ones should be here with us…
