Dance is for everyBODY.

City in Motion Dance Theater, Inc. was founded with the mission to foster the development of high-quality contemporary dance programming and expand the dance audience in the Kansas City metropolitan region. Over the past 30 years, that mission has evolved to include providing a welcoming, non-competitive home for Kansas Citians of all ages who want to learn any of a number of forms of dance, including ballet, hip hop, jazz, modern, tap, and numerous other ethnic and specialty styles.

Dedicated to the pure art form of dance, each instructor is a highly-trained dance professional who honors the integrity, tradition and discipline of the dance.

Specializing in modern dance, we encourage and inspire the creative identity of each dancer.  The title of “dancer” is the common bond that unites City in Motion.

Striving to reach our entire community, we work to gain students and audiences--transcending all ages-- who represent the diverse cross-section of the Kansas City area.

Promoting an environment/climate of non-competition furthers our Mission of dance for everyBODY.

Believing that dance is for everyBODY,  dance provides health benefits to both the mind and body resulting in the increased confidence and well being of the dancer.

Existing within a vibrant artistic community, we flourish in concert with external stakeholders and partners. We strive to bring our vision into the Metro via arts outreach, collaboration and education.
