Artemove was born in April 2011, as a result of the passion for dance of teacher and choreographer Paula Careto and Marisa Silva, her usual student.


After more than 30 years of teaching dance in Cascais, Paula Careto's vast artistic experience combined with Marisa Silva's training in marketing and business management created the necessary conditions for the creation of a teaching, development and artistic dissemination structure aimed at high levels of quality.

Located in the center of Cascais, Artemove is committed to professional, dedicated, versatile and multidisciplinary education.

The school offers the community an artistic education of excellence, both for students who see dance as their professional future, and also for all those who make dance an instrument of growth and personal appreciation.
