ARTS in Motion

ARTS in Motion

Purpose

Art Expression, Inc. and the Pittsburgh Ballet Theater have partnered to create an innovative program that combines visual arts, rhythm, movement, and dance.

Description

ARTS in Motion combines Art Expression’s programming, which helps children with their social skills through art, with the Ballet’s focus on dance and movement in arts education to create something entirely new. The unique program serves students through a close collaboration between the two organizations, who jointly created a multi-disciplinary experience that neither could have achieved on their own.

Students are encouraged to work together to explore dance and visual art around a variety of themes. Music is also incorporated into ARTS in Motion programming, with a special workshop on percussion. Each session of the class will alternate between dance- and movement-focused activities and visual arts activities that share a common theme.
