Celebrating Our 43rd Anniversary! 317-881-1905

Welcome to The Dance Refinery


Indiana’s Largest Dance, Gymnastics & Cheer Facility

Celebrating Our 43rd Anniversary

.Established in 1976, The Dance Refinery is Indiana’s largest  and most experienced dance, gymnastics and cheer facility offering recreational programs in all three areas as well as competitive programs for dance, gymnastics, and acro-dance. In our beautiful 25,000 sq. ft. facility, we offer classes for students, ages 15 months through adult, as well as private lessons in voice and acting classes. We have six dance rooms, a complete gym, snack bar, study hall, vocal studio and a complete dancewear store onsite. 

Effective January 1, 2008, the legal structure of The Dance Refinery, Inc. changed. All of the assets of The Dance Refinery and The Dance Depot were donated by Lynn Herrick to Artist in Motion, Inc., an Indiana nonprofit corporation that has been determined by the Internal Revenue Service to be a tax-exempt organization as described under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended. Artist in Motion, Inc. now owns and controls all assets of The Dance Refinery, Inc. but because of the strong reputation and name recognition of The Dance Refinery, the executive director and board of Artists in Motion, Inc. decided to retain The Dance Refinery as the name the business would continue to operate under. The primary reasons behind creating Artists in Motion, Inc. were (and still are) to allow for the expansion of educational opportunities to students, and to solicit donations and grants so additional aid can be offered to students.. Lynn Herrick is the new Executive Director, of Artists in Motion, Inc. We continue to be located ​at 8335 Shelby Street with the same outstanding employees and curriculum.
