PEOPLE IN MOTION DANCERS are recognized as one of the premiere youth dance teams in the Midwest, numbering over 100 dancers ages 5 to 18 in 2013.

PIM DANCERS perform at area sporting events, parades, pageants, and, of course, THE DANCE STUDIO'S three studio-wide performances (Winter Performance, Spring Showcase and Summer Outdoor Dance Concert). This group is available to all dance students by simply enrolling in a single class - People In Motion Dancers Technique/Performance Class - based on the student's age, ability and experience. [more]

THE DANCE STUDIO in Kirksville was my dance home for 15 years, and it helped develop my love for dancing and performing, and further prepared me for future endeavors. There isn't a better place to "point your toes" than at the Studio with Miss Marcia!
