Welcome to The Movement Center!

TMC offers a variety of Dance and Performing Arts classes, available afternoon, evening and weekends for students ages 3 years old through adult.

TMC is committed to providing a rewarding education in dance, music and drama, with an emphasis on body control and musicality, in a disciplined learning environment. Students gain physical strength and self-confidence while learning fun performing arts skills.

TMC believes an introduction to a variety of dance and performing arts forms is important for a well-rounded education. For those students who go on to professional or community theater, cross training in the performing arts is a must!

TMC welcomes individuals with developmental challenges and disabilities. Partial scholarships are available to families with financial challenges. Please look for the scholarship application on our forms page.

TMC tuition is non-refundable after the first week of class. Adult classes may be paid by the semester or at our drop-in rates. Students who missed a lesson may make up that lesson in any other age appropriate class with the instructor’s permission. All missed classes must be made up in the semester in which they were missed. 

TMC reserves the right to cancel a class for any reason.
