Welcome to Center For Movement Arts

Center for Movement Arts in Portland, Oregon offers children and adults a safe, positive and enjoyable environment in which to study a rich variety of movement disciplines. Students at Center for Movement Arts take dance classes for the love of dance. Our faculty, guest teaching artists and directors work hard to make that love life-long.

CMA Online Classes for Fall 2020

Center for movement Arts will continue our online class offerings for children and adults. We will not offer in person classes before Portland Public Schools do. Session 1 for children runs September 14th through October 24th . Adult classes are on-going.


If your child is a current or former CMA student, please Email CMA with confirmation of Fall participation (or regrets).

If you have not yet taken a CMA online class, we encourage you to try. Since March 17th we have taught over 650 such classes and we are getting pretty good at it! Email us for more information about classes for kids or adults.
