P & M School of Dance was created in 1996 by sisters Paula and Marianne Birch, now called Pure Motion Dance Studio (PMDS). For over 25 years we have been training dancers recreationally & competitively.
Classes are available from 2 years old to adults; all levels from beginner to advanced to professional. There are approximately 10 students in a class with 1 teacher and 1 demonstrator. Our small classes give each child the attention they deserve, and a chance to develop at their own pace. Students need to be comfortable with their bodies to encourage them to adapt to their own style and rhythm of dancing while having fun.
Throughout the year from October to December, the children learn to dance to which they present on demonstration week for the parents. From February to May a choreography is created for the year end recital, which is held each year in a formal establishment. At this time, the children’s self confidence increases!
Pure Motion started to compete in 1998. The team is for dedicated students who are advanced and exceed in a specific style of dance, starting from 5 years old and up.
Once a student is chosen to be on the team, the student will go through intensive weekly training and participate in Regional and National Competitions throughout Canada and the United States, as well as performing in Benefit shows and special events for the community.
Pure Motion is proud of there teachers, they have worked hard to get where they are. Our Staff is enthusiastic, energetic, encouraging and are great role models. They always bring out the best in their students. They are dedicated individuals who take the art seriously, but their education does not stop here.
Our teachers take courses and workshops to learn and enhance proper teaching techniques, up-to-date choreography, discipline approaches and instructional strategies. Friendly and safe environment for students to learn and this is done with patience, friendliness, encouragement and passion!
Outstanding credentials is a compliment of an amazing teaching staff.
Alba is joining Pure Motion, this year and the reason is that I am so impressed by the owner and teacher, Paula Birch. She seems to pull out the best in the students. At camp this summer, after just 5 days, my beginner just soaked it up and danced with passion. What more could I want, right? A 7 year old beginner dancing with actual excitement and dramatic expressions on her face?!!? Wow! I am already excited about the show at the end of the year;)
Just wanted to say thanx for such a great year! Because of you I have learnt to be such a confident dancer. You have helped me achieve so much! It was a lot of fun working on my “solo” with you. It’s going to be great. I appreciate all the extra hard work you have pursued for this dance! I know how you love your “junk” food. So my mom made you batch of her famous cookies, enjoy!
Thanx Paula! I Love You! Elisa Saxe
The day I came to P&M, I knew I'd like it here. It was such a warm place with such a friendly teacher. I had no idea it would become such a big part of my life. Thank-you so much for everything Paula! You're the best teacher ever. I'll never forget the time I spent here. Love,
xoxo JESSIE FUOCO
