Art In Motion Dance Academy
Darlin Garcia, the first-place finisher at the 2010 and 2011 Philadelphia SalsaFest, founded Art In Motion Dance Academy to provide a world-class environment in which dancers could form a community built around excellence and teamwork. Home to the Art In Motion Latin Dancers dance team, a squad that has traveled around the world to teach and compete, the academy also offers dance classes to outside students.
Pupils learn salsa, mambo, merengue, and any number of other Latin dance styles under the tutelage of trained and friendly instructors. Men, women, or mannequins with a strong sense of rhythm can also participate in Zumba sessions, which blend elements of Latin dance with exercise routines.
