With a heavy heart I inform you Accented Motions will no longer be conducting business.

Over the past two years the financial toll that has been put upon me, and most importantly my family,
has been past the point of exhaustion. This was going to be my last year with Accented Motions. However, it was never my intention to leave everyone in the middle. I would never think of doing that to my students, who have been the most important part of my life for the past 6 years. I tried to make it work. I refused to pay myself for two years to make it work. I found a part-time job so that my paycheck could go back into the studio. I did not give up. I refused to leave. Our move to the new location with low enrollment was something that I could not fix or control anymore. 

The studio is currently going through a transition and will be under a new name, at a new location with new owners.I do know that the Accented Motions spirit will be alive in the new studio. The name of the studio doesn’t matter. It’s the loving environment that we have always offered for all our dancers. I am truly sorry from the bottom of my heart. This is not how I wanted to end my year. I hope down the line you all can forgive me. Thank you all for everything. Thank you for allowing me to share my love of dance with every single one of you. Moving forward, I will not be involved with the new dance studio. It will be best for the new studio to have a fresh start. This was a very difficult choice, but we all agree it is the best choice for the future of the studio. I will miss all of my dancers more than anything.  

For information about the new studio and classes, please contact Natalie Gage by phone number 317-771-2114 or via email at 

Our Dance Company is still scheduled to perform at the Indiana Pacers game on Thursday, February 16th. This will be our last performance as Accented Motions. 

If you have any further questions you can continue to contact me at 317-826-1033 or email me at

With my deepest regards and sympathies,
Linda Thomson
