ART IN MOTION, Perrysburg Dance Academy's contemporary dance ensemble, is aimed at enhancing artistry and expression in performance. During each rehearsal, emphasis is placed on creating meaningful connections to dance and exploring storytelling and self-expression.  Dancers learn to connect their mind, body, heart, and spirit through contemporary, modern, and lyrical dance.

There is no audition for membership; however, dancers must meet the following criteria​:

  • Dancers must be currently registered and enrolled students of Perrysburg Dance Academy.

  • Dancers must have a history of good attendance and a positive attitude.

  • Studio class requirements include Ballet III, IV, or V AND lyrical or modern. If a student not meeting these requirements wishes to join, please direct your request to Miss Alisa at

Other important information:

  • Advanced dancers (those students in Ballet IV and V) can request to choreograph duets, trios, or small group pieces.

  • REHEARSALS: From January until our showcase in June, AIM will operate on a rehearsal schedule that will meet at PDA between 2:00-5:00 PM on the following Sundays - January 30; February 6, 20, 27; March 4,13 (tentatively 3/20 and 3/27); April 3 (tentatively 4/10); May 1, 15, 22 (tentatively 5/8); and our dress rehearsal on Tuesday, May 31, 2022.

  • AIM will perform the closing number in the PDA spring dance concerts on Saturday, June 4, 2022, and will present their pieces in a spring showcase at Owens Community College on Sunday, June 5, 2022.

  • All AIM members will learn and perform one large group number and can choose to perform additional student-choreographed duets, trios, and/or small group numbers.

  • Costs are kept to a minimum but will include:  $50.00 registration/membership fee and a $65.00 monthly rehearsal fee (non-discountable). Dancers will need to purchase one costume to be worn in the group dance and will be required to provide costume pieces for any additional numbers they are participating in.
