MotionArt’s mission is to share the art of dance and the joy of movement with people of all ages and abilities. Our classes, workshops and performances explore infinite possibilities within the universal dance principles of time, space and energy.  We strive to enrich lives by fostering creativity, body awareness, and self expression in a fun, non-competitive, welcoming environment.

MotionArt was co-founded by Pam Gleason and Diane Moncrieff in 2013. We reach diverse groups of people by teaching and presenting dance in multiple locations throughout the Twin Cities and beyond. Our approach to dance stems from the Expressionist teachings of Wigman, Holm, Nikolais and Hauser and continues to evolve. We emphasize the creative interplay of dynamic movement qualities, rhythmic awareness and the conscious use of space. And…… we like to have fun!
