Capitol Movement presents the Annual Capitol Movement Project (CMP) in the spring each year. Through a combination of artistry, sincerity, precision, and diversity, story telling is at its best with the Capitol Movement Dance Company.
Originating in the heart of DC, Capitol Movement revisited its roots through an exuberant and diverse evening of dance at the Historic Lincoln Theatre. Just back home from an international tour and dedicated to building better lives through dance, the Capitol Movement Dance Company explored what HOME means to each of us.Media Movement View Event Calendar View Demo Reel Get the DVD

The inaugural Capitol Movement Project dance concert took place on June 10, 2006 at the historic Lincoln Theatre, with an original cast of 45 dancers. Having just concluded their eighth season and SOLD OUT the sixth annual dance concert at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, the Capitol Movement Dance Company will spend the coming months preparing for guest performances, workshops, and new adventures.

"[The] Capitol Movement production was an exciting and fun event. I had never been to a dance performance prior, but after seeing what the DC dance community is capable of, I plan to attend additional performances. Amber and Stephanie are great stewards to the dancing arts, I hope their program continues to thrive."

"As in previous CMI performances, we expected nothing less than a "top notch" on the edge show. However, we were not prepared for the "over the edge" emotional response this year's show elicited from the audience… The production did more than just peel back the layers. The talented CMI performers truly connected with our human emotions through their thought provoking, socially conscious pieces that led us on a journey of true life experiences of addiction, lust, secrets, etc. expressed through dance. We left the Kennedy Center truly moved by the magical performance from the Capitol Movement Dance Company. We can't wait to see what CMI has in store for us next year."

"Let me be one of the first to say 'newcomers stir up dance community.' The Capitol Movement Project's Hoop Dreams Fundraiser was an ensemble of dance performances that let the world know the performing arts are ALIVE in Washington, DC. Held at the historic Lincoln Theater, the night showcased a combination of skillfully danced modern, jazz, and hip hop numbers. The audience begging for more, lingered outside on U street for a chance to celebrate with the performers. Some of the choreographed pieces were as good as any being performed today. Make room for The Capitol Movement Project."
