At Art in Motion Pittsburgh, we believe that dance is for EVERYONE regardless of age, skill level, size, gender, class, race, education or disability. We welcome students into our community in order to nurture and foster their love of dance through meaningful, inclusive and considerate instruction. We have created a studio community that explores international and traditional dance forms, rhythms and cultures in a culturally sensitive, safe and fun environment.
