ABOUT US

Owner/Instructor

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, 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, Magnificent Mile Lights Parade, Brookfield Zoo, Gurnee Mills Mall, Hawthorn Mall, Schaumburg Boomers, Chicago Dogs, Northwestern Basketball and Football games, Chicago Bulls, Windy City Bulls, Chicago Sky, Chicago Wolves, and Six Flags Great America.

Our Eclipse Competition Team formed in 2017 and is comprised of dancers ages 12-18. We compete in five regional competitions every season. 

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.
