Marc Fol., founder and CEO of Art in motion, started dancing in 2001 with his friends in high school and at „Hamilius“. From day one, he was deeply in love with dance and took every chance to jump around, kick his feet up, be upside down and feel free. As he grew up with the movies of Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly he was always attracted by footworks and the unlimitless of this art form. For him, everything surrounding us is dancing and can affect us in our dancestyles.
In 2002, in order to get a room to practice in in winter, he started teaching in a youth house for a symbolic 1€ (enough to buy some water). Since then, he has been teaching classes in Luxembourg and Europe in many cultural and educational institutions and also collaborated with dancers from USA, Korea, France, Germany, Ukraine, etc. He takes part in a lot of projects, organizes events in collaboration with different communities, the state of Luxembourg, schools, dancers from around the world. He tries to be the best teacher he possibly could be, so he also forms himself in the history of dance, pedagogical projects and courses, such as anti-violence and dance psychology and is even giving formations to the educational sector on how to implant art in their pedagogical structure.
In 2008, he started going to international workshops and taking part in programms of different dancestyles such as : Hip Hop, House, Locking, Popping, Dancehall, Contemporary, Ballet, etc. Now he is doing a melting pot with these different styles and teach all he can as for freestyle or choreography.
In 2010, he founded an non lucrative association called „Street Leaders“ to help the dancers in Luxembourg and to create opportunities by organizing events, workshops, cultural exchange programs and more.
In 2016, he founded the Art in motion dance studio to help everyone find their own language, breaking away from conventions and to inspire the younger generation to believe in themselves. It is a new approach to Hip Hop dance classes where you don’t only learn the party steps or choreographies but also learn to become a true artist and increase your creativity by simply enjoying dancing with more freedom. Growing as an artist means growing as a human being, to truly become yourself and be proud of it.
Even if he loved going on stage, competitions, judging competition, travelling,etc., he loved it even more to teach his knowledge and sharing his passion with the students so, he decided to become a dance teacher. Some of his students follow him since over 10 years so he saw them grow up from a cute kid to a grown human being. For him it is essential to listen to his students not only when it comes to dance but also if they need someone to just talk to. He wanna reach out to them and make sure that they leave the classes and actually learned something in dance or discovered something new about themselves.
