Throughout the years, Moves & Grooves, Inc. grew little by little into the organization it is today. It began its humble beginnings in 2002, as a simple after-school program for at-risk youth in North Nashville. In 2004, the organization hosted its first Summer Enrichment Camp on the historical campus of Fisk University. In 2010, the Ladies of Purpose mentoring program was launched for high school sophomores where eight young women explored college, careers and community service through an intensive six-week summer workshop.
In Fall 2012 Moves & Grooves became a NAZA (Nashville After Zone Alliance) Anchor Partner serving 30 students at Croft Middle School. NAZA is a network of established afterschool providers, each operating in a different geographic zone offering programs that provide meaningful enrichment activities in safe and structured environments. Moves & Grooves is excited to announce on September 9, 2013 the Moves & Grooves Afterschool program will expand to serve 75 additional students attending Croft, Apollo and Wright Middle schools in Davidson County.This art- infused Project -Based Learning experience is FREE of charge to all students who attend these schools and made possible through a grant from the Tennessee Arts Commission and through NAZA funding partners.
