Awesome Art in Motion, a dance company for children ages 6 to 12, will present “METEOR: Student Choreography to Light Up Your Afternoon” on Saturday, May 25, at 2 p.m. at The Perch within Greenfield’s Hawks & Reed Performing Arts Center.

Now in its sixth year, Awesome Art in Motion is made up of 15 young dancers who have been creating dances based on their own inspirations and dance styles. They have created dances inspired by stories about their lives, how they want their lives to be and from their wild imaginations, according to an Awesome Art in Motion press release.

The dances are also inspired by the music the dancers love. In each dance, the relationships between dancers is alive as company members share the results of a year of dancing and dance-making in the community.

Awesome Art in Motion, a project of Great Falls Creative Movement, offers creative dance education for children in and around Franklin County. In addition to programming at its Turners Falls studio, Great Falls Creative Movement offers programming and artist-in-residence opportunities at schools and community centers throughout the area.

Tickets are $1 to $10 sliding scale. Children will be admitted for free.
