Urban Movement Arts

2100 chestnut st

 

UMA’s lineup of classes are primarily based in contemporary Black American folkloric dance, African folkloric dance, Latin American dance and contemporary somatic and movement culture practices. Some of you might be wondering what Black American folkloric dance is- anything from Lindy Hop to Hip Hop to Breakdance are American folklore and were born in U.S.’s Black communities. UMA is a proud ambassador of many dance forms that fall into the category of Black American Folklore.

UMA invites you to explore the many benefits that come from a dance practice with us. They are a space where you can de-stress, make friends and grow- all the while, celebrating and commemorating the communities and cultures that have laid the foundations for the mediums that we express ourselves within.

You can check out UMA’s schedule on their website for both locations at 2100 Chestnut St. and 812 Chestnut St. Never been to UMA before? You can take unlimited classes your first month for only $40! Your Intro Month starts at the point of purchase and expires after 1 month (does not automatically renew).
