The Master Class Series

In an effort to expose our students to different styles and approaches, and allow them to explore everything that the large umbrella of dance has to offer, we are proud to present The Master Class Series. Each month, dancers ages 10 and up will have the opportunity to work with professional artists to supplement their regularly scheduled classes. The faculty at Motion Arts is excited to bring a wide range of talented specialists from NYC and beyond into our studio. We know it will be a rewarding and enriching experience for our dancers!
