Artists in Motion (AIM)
A pre professional repertory dance company in residence at Fineline Theatre Arts. We strive to give company members a true experience of being in a professional repertory company from rigorous weekly rehearsals and numerous performance opportunities to working with professional choreographers. Dancers also attend master classes throughout the season.
Students gain a professional work ethic, accountability, an enhanced ability to work with others and an opportunity to delve deeper into the performance aspect of dance. Our repertory gives dancers an opportunity to work in many different dance forms. Past choreographers include Robert Battle, BJ Sullivan, Noah Racey, Marisa Ballaro, Mary Ann Lamb, Arlene Begelman, Elizabeth Parkinson, Kerry Gallagher, the American Dance Legacy Initiative Repertory Etudes and Gev Manoukian.
AIM also seeks to enhance our community by giving free performances and engaging in charity outreach. We have raised funds through performances and fundraising initiatives for the Women’s Center of Danbury, Julia’s Wings Foundation, Dancers Responding to AIDS/Broadway Cares Equity Fights AIDS, The Khalda Logan Scholarship Fund and the Mark Mills Foundation.
Our season is August through June.
All preprofessional FineLine dancers are required to participate in AIM. Dancers not yet in the pre professional level are required to take at least the minimum required classes for their level and attend a summer intensive that has been approved by the directors.
Co Directors: Kerry Gallagher and Elizabeth Parkinson
We are a 501c3 non profit organization.
