Rhythm In Motion Dance Centre' students have busy spring performing and competing

Eighteen Rhythm In Motion Dance Centre students performed during a Cleveland Cavs NBA basketball game in February.

The piece the dancers performed titled "Girls" was choreographed by Bluffton's Jocelyn Sherman and directed by RIMDC owner Darcey Schneider.

"Their number is an explosive choreographed piece that features dancers ages 6-17 from the Lima, Ada, Upper Scioto Valley and Bluffton area schools," said Schneider. "The dancers once again dazzled the crowd in their unique, sequin and sparkle costumes that complimented their professional and clean routine."

2013 Outback Bowl
Many of these dancers will travel to the 2013 Outback Bowl football game in Tampa, Fla., to perform with a select group of performers and dancers during the pregame and halftime performances.

The group of 20 dancers is currently raising money to cover the cost of a trip.

"If your organization is looking for a talented group to entertain at your next function, call Schneider at 419-236-7651 to set up a performance to help raise money for these dancers.

Spring session starts March 22
The studio currently has classes for ages 2 through adults. Spring session of technique classes start March 22. No registration required to participate in spring tech classes.

"We are also taking registration for our fall 2012 classes," said Schneider. " Registration fees are required for the fall 2012 classes."

Dance Mom's class starts March 26
"Are you an adult looking for a fun and easy way to get your body in shape for the summer sun?" asks Schneider. "Or are looking for a high- energy class that will work your muscles in a new way and learn basics in Hip Hop?"

"Dance Mom's" class starts March 26. RIMDC offers a nine-week Hip Hop session to teach the newest moves. Performance in the studio's spring recital is optional. Cost is $55 due by March 22. This class is open to the public.
