our mission

Professional Ballerina Allison DeBona and Ballet in the City have come together to offer a Summer Intensive for Dancers. Our inaugural year was 2015 in Cleveland, Ohio.

Students of artÉmotion will explore their artistry and technique in tandem. No movement without a purpose, without a unique story.

The artÉmotion Summer Intensive shapes students into multidimensional dancers by asking them to stretch beyond their physical abilities and help them find their inner voices as artists. Our mission is facilitated by our curriculum. Our students are offered classes in Ballet, Pointe, Men's Class, Variations, Contemporary, Modern, Character, Jazz, Hip Hop, Corps to the Core (designed by Allison DeBona for artÉmotion), Conditioning and unique to our program, Musical Theatre and Acting.
