PMDS Company


The Company at Perpetual Motion Dance Studio is designed to educate and prepare dancers to enter the real world both in the dance industry and other fields. The company welcomes dancers from ages 7-18. We focus on each individual dancer’s goals to find the best fit for them. The commitments range depending upon the track the dancer enters and the average age of each group. The auditions are held to evaluate each dancer’s current abilities as well as their potential. At the auditions, dancers who meet the qualifications can be considered for additional opportunities such as small groups and solos. This program is constantly growing and readjusting to benefit the dancers and reflect the current state of the dance industry opening up more opportunities for the dancers. At its core, the company is a supportive family where dancers are challenged, educated, and reaching for their goals all while having fun!
