Design In Motion Dance Studio offers a non-competitive performance group for dancers who wish to work on choreography, auditioning, and performance skills. The goal of this optional program is to offer students the opportunity to perform and share their talents by participating in community service and charity based events.
A guest artist will be invited to work with the students on technique and choreography to be showcased at the benefit performance. Studio staff will collaborate on remaining company repertoire. Students are expected to demonstrate a professional attitude, support and cooperate with other company members and instructors.
