The Art of Motion (affectionately known as AOM) began as a dream that combined two of our owner's greatest passions: dance and children. Hannah Pasquinzo has been teaching Northwest Arkansas' youth for over 20 years, and she couldn't be more proud to be building a legacy that thrives on values like creativity, teamwork, family, and fun!
Owner and Director Hannah was just naive and adventurous enough to think that she could start her own dance studio at the ripe 'ole age of 21. And thank goodness - AOM has been serving Northwest Arkansas for 17 years now! When she's not at the studio, you can find Hannah hanging out with her husband and two children or riding her horses. You can also see what she's up to on Insta @hannahpasquinzo.
Assistant Instructor Lynae immediately fell in love with the art of dance at age 12 when she auditioned for her school dance team. She continued to train at Above the Barre Dance Academy and dance on the Golden Girls Dance Team in Olathe, KS throughout high school. When not dancing, Lynae stays busy studying biology and pre-med at the University of Arkansas in hopes of becoming a pediatrician. She is excited to be part of the AOM family and pass on her passion for dance to the next generation!
