City in Motion Dance Theater has been part of the cultural fabric of Kansas City since 1985. City in Motion Dance Theater is a professional dance company, a school of dance and a presenter of dance. Its mission is to foster the development of high-quality contemporary dance programming and expand the dance audience in the Kansas City metropolitan region. City in Motion is comprised of eight professionally trained dancers and directed by three co-artistic directors, Andrea Skowronek, Penelope Hearne and Stephanie Whittler. The company has a balanced combination of high quality technique and artistically driven choreography. City in Motion strives to ensure that dance concerts demonstrate a wide range of themes from comedies to abstract commentaries on social, political, and human reflections. The movement varies from high energy physicality to soft fluid dynamics that suspend, release and travel across the stage in smooth spatial patterns. The tour brings sixty minutes of dance using eight dancers performing new works and repertoire pieces. The tour series shows eight contemporary pieces. They can also offer workshops in creative movement, modern, improvisation and ballet for teens and adults.
