- Since 1996 -
Thank-you for your interest in P&M School of Dance created in 1996 by sisters Paula & Marianne Birch, now called Pure Motion Dance Studio.
Our Mission is to teach children how to dance, have fun and to develop their talent which is one of the greatest gifts we can provide to your child.
Our Main Goal is to provide quality dance instruction, helping each student reach their maximum potential. Instilling self-confidence, self-esteem and an appreciation for the art of dance.
Our Philosophy not every child will come to know the thunder of applause or the thrill of a curtain call on the stage, but through the discipline of dance, will learn passion, poise and grace to last a lifetime.
Pure Motion offers excellent training from experienced teachers to motivate and inspire the passion for dance in all students. Whether pursuing a professional career or to those dancing for recreational enjoyment.
The opportunity to perform is offered to our students at our Annual Recital, at various community and charity functions and in competitions.
We promote a healthy, positive teaching environment in the dance studio.
After 27 successful years, PMDS continues to prevail in every aspect of dance and entertainment. The school promises dancers to achieve beyond their expectations in an environment which embraces diversity and independence.
