Welcome to Artistry In Motion Dance and Performing Arts Studio!

We offer a place of creativity and expression with excellent training in Dance and the Performing Arts. A place of warmth, grace, and acceptance - one can learn and create in this beautiful space.

Having been a dancer, actor, singer, choreographer, and teacher in the Performing Arts for over 35 years, I wanted to open a studio that allowed me to give wonderful instruction and the passion of what I hold in my heart. The LOVE OF DANCE AND THE ARTS!

Being a student of Tessa Williams School of Ballet in Spokane at the age of 5 and going away as a teen to pursue my dreams, I now have returned home. My dance and performing arts experience is backed by years of study, performing, and teaching from New York to the San Francisco Bay Area. I also have a passionate look into the arts as a mother of a professional ballet dancer, and teacher of many that have gone on to perform professionally.

Starting the Adult Ballet Classes has been one of the most fulfilling experiences in teaching. Many join the ballet class for the first time, and yet others are taking class after years away from it. I have mothers and daughters, mothers and sons, and siblings taking class together. It is such a blessing! Professionals take classes as well and love the freedom of expression. A feeling of family!

Private coaching is very popular way to receive individual attention to the detail in order to expand on the artistry of ballet, acting, musical theatre, vocals, piano, and choreography. Private lessons are available for all ages. Student and Adult Group Classes are being added as the studio develops along with workshops in all areas taught by our talented instructors.

I love to teach and give quality time to whoever walks through the door. Meeting each one where they are and creating a program that fits their needs. My daughters Chantelle and Cassandra, who came up with the Studio Name Artistry In Motion, are with me in my heart every day. This was a dream and I am thrilled to be sharing it with all of you!

Love and Many Blessings,
