The City in Motion Dance Performance Series is the venue in Kansas City for eclectic, family-oriented contemporary dance. Its unique programming, offering a showcase for the talents of area choreographers and performers, ensures it's appeal. Area  choreographers are given the opportunity to develop new dance pieces, local dancers are given the opportunity to perform and audiences are given the opportunity to experience dance. City in Motion has a long history as a presenter of quality dance, while also challenging audiences with new and often thought-provoking performance art.

Seasonal Performances:


Every piece stepped out on a limb with contemporary vanguard. We are bombarded daily with news of a worsening economy — perhaps these artists show that desperate times call for divergently creative choices. The uncertainty of our stability inspired bold, artistic statement, cutting the edges of innovation. A Modern Night at the Folly entertains and provokes us annually with a celebration of dance.”

exuberant, imaginative, a soul-stirring affirmation of the soaring possibilities of the human spirit.”
