About The Movement Center

 

"Creating Good People through Excellent Education in the Performing Arts."

 
 
Thank you for your interest in performing arts classes at The Movement Center. We have created a loving, safe atmosphere where you or your child can learn valuable skills. In a controlled learning environment we stress creativity and self expression, courtesy and cooperation. 
 
Performing arts classes enhance a child’s gross and fine motor skills and develop strength, flexibility, poise and confidence. Research has shown that early education in the arts helps brain and motor skill development and that teens need quality after school activities that teach life skills. At TMC our goal is to teach life skills such as creative problem solving and a disciplined work ethic. TMC endeavors to offer the highest caliber, disciplined instruction available.
 
TMC is a non-profit 501(c)(3) and currently serves over 300 students in 40 different classes. Students range from toddlers through adults. Classes are offered in Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Hip Hop, Vocal performance, Musical theater and Tumbling. Numerous children with special needs are enrolled in our classes and from time to time Master classes are offered. In addition, a variety of classes in fitness, dance and music are offered for adults and seniors.
 
If you are new to The Movement Center – welcome to our family. We hope you will enjoy your adventure into the performing arts and that participating in the arts – as a performer, student, teacher or patron – will become a life-long passion for you and your family!
