We are so much greater than the sum of our parts

City in Motion is more than a dance school. City in Motion is more than a performance series. 

City in Motion is more than a professional dance company.  We are a community.


Our dancers are all ages and experience levels. Our borders are not finite. Performers learn. Students teach. And all of us DANCE because dance is for everyBODY :)

City in Motion Dance Theater was founded in 1985 and has been a constant presence in the Kansas City dance community.  The company produces three key concerts a year: A  Modern Night at the Gem, the annual company spring concert, and Dance in the Park.  You can also see the company at other dance events throughout the year.

City in Motion offers accessible dance for everyBODY, regardless of your fitness level or age! While our School is seeking a permanent location, we are still offering dance outreach and satellite class locations! Let us connect your community, school, or group to some of KC's best instructors!

City in Motion organizes two youth companies: The Children's Dance Theater and the Apprentice Company, together known as the Youth Dance Theater.  Auditions are held August - October for young dancers ages 5-18, with scholarships available.  


We are the longest running contemporary dance company in Kansas City, and many of our founders are still part of the Kansas City dance community today. 


We are a non-profit, so none of what we do would be possible without the support of our sponsors, donors, board members, and volunteers. 


Join our amazing community of partners and help continue our legacy of providing high-quality contemporary dance to Kansas City!
