Art in Motion is a family owned and run business. Art in Motion Richmond Dance Academy was established in 2008 and we are in our 11th dance season. Collectively we have over 80 years of dance instruction and performance experience and have been involved with numerous Musical and Dramatic Productions. We are 5th generation self-employed business owners, and have ran successful businesses for 20 years. After much thought and prayer we decided to open this studio and combine our experience and talents to provide a unique family friendly experience for the people in our own community as well as ourselves. Our experience not only entails the family members who took dance instruction and were in the performances but the added experience of being their parents with the needs and wants of the people behind the dancers. The studio has been built with all of that in mind.
We have assembled a group of creative and caring individuals all with experience and knowledge in areas to bring to our students and their family members a complete "Art in Motion" experience. We have dance, art, music, exercise classes, movies, crafts and other activities throughout the year.
We are a Christian family and this is therefore a Christian business, giving all Praise and Glory to Our Lord Jesus Christ. We welcome everyone and do not preach our faith, but hope to live it in word and deed.

AIM STUDIO FEATURES
~ The Sprung Maple Floors: A sprung floor is a floor that absorbs shocks giving it a softer feel. Such floors are considered the best available for dance, indoor sports and physical education. They enhance performance and greatly reduce injuries. The Brazilian Maple is the perfect wood for dance.
~ We are blessed to have four dance rooms and two spacious lobbies. To meet the needs of our Art in Motion students and families we also have a children's play area in the back lobby and a study area in the front lobby.
~ AIM now has an Outdoor Dance Space! This beautiful new area gives us the option to dance outside during the warmer months. We also have enjoyed hosting fun events in this space as well such as the AIM Prom, Princess Camp, and outdoor ballet barre class!
~ Dancers can rent a locker for just a semester or the whole dance year. Eliminate the need to drag your dance bag back and forth!
~ Watch your little dancers from the lobby windows without distracting them.
~13 foot ceilings in our largest dance space.
~ Wireless Internet in the Lobby: we feel that students as well as parents spend so much time in the lobby of a dance studio, we wanted to provide the ability for them to maximize their time using the internet for their job, school work or just checking their email.
~An area for eating in both lobbies...food and drinks are welcome. Snacks and beverages are also available for purchase.
~ Three restrooms including a specially designed bathroom for younger kids.
~ Dance Apparel is available for purchase in the Lobby.
~ Parents are welcome to watch their children's classes anytime through our very large viewing windows.
~ Art in Motion is located in the charming Historic Downtown District of Richmond. We are at the corner of Main and the Railroad Tracks. AIM has two entrances, one located on Main Street and our primary entrance off Gleason Street (parking lot) We are minutes away from the Kroger Plaza along with many other shops and restaurants. It is very convenient to do your errands while someone is in class, saving both time and gas.
