It's Coming!!!

  01 January 2019

Moves & Grooves, Inc. (in partnership with FutureShirts) are teaming up together to launch a brand new, online store very soon.

Over the summer months of 2018, Moves & Grooves, Inc. worked with a 11 high school students through Opportunity NOW. Their mission, was to raise awareness about the need for a youth arts space in Antioch/South Nashville, and show the community how Moves & Grooves can fulfill that need.

Futureshirts guided students through the design and t-shirt production process to make M.A.G. merchandise. All proceeds from these student-designed shirts will go toward funding the construction for Nashville's first youth arts space with affordable housing for artists.

It's an exciting time for Moves & Grooves, as we finish the final details needed to launch this brand new, online store. So, keep your eyes focused on our website and social media outlets... as further updates develop.
