About Us

At Capitol Movement, Inc. (CMI) it is our mission to build better lives through dance. We strive to provide programs and opportunities for all, despite socioeconomic barriers, by offering traveling classrooms for schools and community partners in need of arts education programming. We assist young people from economically disadvantaged backgrounds via dance scholarship programs as well as training at our summer camp intensives, annual conventions, and outreach classes. Capitol Movement strives to make it possible for all residents of the DC Metropolitan area to participate in and patronize the arts.

The lessons learned in dance classes and rehearsals reach far beyond the steps and tricks dancers encounter – regardless of the dancer's age. Through our Adult Dance Company and studio classes, CMI gives local business professionals an outlet in the creative economy, one where they can be poignant and empowered through artistry in motion. Our dance programs build confidence, stress teamwork, teach commitment and discipline, and open doors to dreams, bringing dancers from all walks of life together.

The CMI organization has three primary objectives:
1) Ensure excellence in its professional performance company.
2) Develop and enhance the next generation of dancers through its Capitol Movement Studio, youth dance programs, outreach classes, and Scholarship opportunities.
3) Serve the communities of the Washington, DC metropolitan area.

"I have been a long time fan of Capitol Movement and would like to commend you on the great work you do, especially for our youth."
