Upcoming Event!  It’s a Wonderful Night in Turners Falls

Awesome Art in Motion is a year-long creative dance and dance-making program for elementary aged children.

The program has three focuses; building each child’s positive relationship to their own mind/body/spirit, building relationships and community through dance, and supporting children to create their own dance-based art.

The program is divided into two groups:

The Flying Kangaroos for 6 – 8 year-olds
Tuesdays from 4 – 5:45

The Dancing Potatoes for 9 – 12 year-olds
Wednesdays from 3:45 – 6:15

Each group meets weekly for a creative dance class followed by a company rehearsal. The two groups meet together once a month for a full company class and rehearsal in the first part of the year, and for community engagement and performance opportunities in the second half of the year.

The 2019/2020 runs from mid-September through early June with a three week winter recess. Registration will open in early August.

Full year tuition for this program is $500 – $1000 sliding scale. A payment of $250 – $500 is due at the time of registration. Monthly payment plans are also available.

Registration will open for the 2020/21 school year in July 2020.


Awesome Art in Motion performs several times during the year is a variety of locations and situations: festivals, assisted living homes, concert halls, schools, and even outside!

Awesome Art in Motion creates dances using improvisational and choreographic dance-making methods,  with concepts, choreography, costume and set design created collaboratively between company members.
