The Movement Arts Center is a educational state of the arts facility located off Highway 55 and Meramec Bottom Road in the Meramec Center Complex in the St. Louis area. The center is equipped with three dance rooms designed to promote safety for your child. Our rooms have raised sprung flooring to protect each student from joint injury upon impact. Each room is outfitted with full wall mirrors and surround sound audio systems. We also provide viewing for parents to watch and experience your child's progression first hand.

The Movement Arts Center runs on a wireless wifi network. Upon waiting for your child feel free to catch up on office work or simply do some online shopping. Our Wifi network also benefits students that require internet access for school projects. There is a separate student lounge where your child can finish homework in a quiet atmosphere. A microwave and vending are available in the center's kitchen for students who have multiple classes.

The Movement Arts Center is more than just a place to educate our dancers in the art of dance, we consider you our extended family. Along with doing outside team building activies we believe it is important to give back to our community by participating in different charitable events. Our staff is very passionate about what they do, passing along their skill and love for dance in a positive healthy way is our teacher's number one priority. All classes are limited in size for individual one on one attention. The M.A.C.'s belief is giving students as many opportunities to learn all forms of dance in an age appropriate manner. Bringing in outside choreographers and guest teachers on a regular basis gives the students a chance to learn a new point of view.

Whether it be for a fun high energetic educational class or to continue into the professional world of the arts. Whatever your objective is, you can find it HERE at the Movement Arts Center.
