Our Goals & Accomplishments

Since our founding in 2002, Moves and Grooves, Inc. has elevated student outcomes using the arts and humanities. More than an after school program, we work with students, their families and teachers over a student’s school career. By providing mentorship and guidance to students, we have seen amazing results in increased graduation rates and post-college career placements.
  • We serve over 250 students each year - that's more than a 1,600% increase since 2002.

We direct more than 80% of our funding
into our programs.

  • 91% of our Middle School students say that Moves and Grooves provides safety, a positive challenge,
    and makes them want to learn more new things.
  • Our students burn between 330-488 calories per hour during dance classes, keeping them healthy and fit.
  • Our proven curriculum is fully STEAM aligned, using the Arts as a catalyst for success.
  • 96% of Moves and Grooves students are more interested in attending college and
    pursuing STEM careers since participating in our programs.
  • Our students have used their STEAM enhanced education to be the first in their family to graduate from college, become pilots, judges and more.

Around the world, schools have closed and governments are issuing Stay at Home orders to stop the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19). This means families are self-isolating and hunkering down at home. If you have kids, this may seem like both a blessing and a curse. Be it a toddler or a tween, you’re probably scratching your head on how to fill the hours of the day, and most importantly, establish a sense of normalcy and calm in your household.YOU ARE NOT ALONE. Moves & Grooves is here to help.
