An Inspiring, Passionate, and Nurturing Dance Experience.






We believe dance promotes patience, endurance, respect, artistic expression, and builds self-confidence. In Motion Dance offers individual dancer attention, respect towards each student, and guidance through the proper techniques. We are dedicated to being a part of Long Grove and its surrounding communities by encouraging expression through movement.

In Motion Dance offers students ages 2 ½ – adult opportunities to learn a variety of dance styles, including: ballet, broadway jazz, hip-hop, jazz, lyrical, poms, and tap.

In addition to our full schedule of classes, IMD offers dancers the opportunity to join one of our performance dance companies, Starlites, Starburst, Sensational, Thrive, Artistic, and Refined. All of our dance companies perform throughout the year at many notable venues, such as: Walt Disney World, Universal Studios Orlando, Brookfield Zoo, Gurnee Mills Mall, Hawthorn Mall, Schaumburg Boomers, Northwestern Basketball and Football games, Chicago Bulls, Windy City Bulls, Chicago Sky, Chicago Wolves, and Six Flags Great America.

We wish to thank our students and families for their continuous support and dedication to the studio and for sharing your love of dance with us.






All of our dance companies perform at many notable venues throughout the year, such as: United Center – Chicago Bulls, Chicago Wolves, Chicago Sky, Schaumburg Boomers, Brookfield Zoo, Hawthorn Mall, Long Grove Fests, and local nursing homes. We also travel to Walt Disney World every three years to perform.
