DEN is a pre-professional dance company established in 1983 to provide students with the opportunity to be a part of an organization that will teach the art of dance and performance in a fun and positive, yet disciplined, environment.  The program promotes self-esteem and self-discipline while allowing students an outlet for creativity and self-expression.  As a member of DEN, you will receive extensive dance training in a professional environment, and have the opportunity to perform in professional theaters, as well as community events.

 Thanks to Liberty Bay Danceworks and Founding Director Michael Falatico a solid foundation of dance training and tradition was established.  In 2010, Liberty Bay transitioned into InMotion Performing Arts Studio and had the privilege of continuing to build the legacy of DEN and the organization. The Company has continued to flourish under the Direction of Sara Milov since 2011.
