We provide a warm welcoming enviroment where people of all ages and levels can come together to explore their self expression through the love of dance, movement, music, and art. We focus not only on improving technique but providing programs that promote self confidence, fun, kindness, community, and healthy living habits. We hope that you will join us!

"I am striving to provide a place where everyone feels happy and welcome, an escape from our day to day lives, a place where your problems melt away as you walk thru the front door, a place full of laughter, friendships, confidence, and imagination. I want the City Park Movement and Art community to feel like your extended family." ~ Miss Nikki
