About Armentality Movement Arts Center

Armentality Movement Arts Center is the achievement of a deep-rooted vision by Founder and Creative Director Laura Armenta to build a multifaceted organization that offers a range of activities in movement and holistic arts.
Established in 1998, Armentality Movement Arts Center has gone through a few name and location changes, and it has fabulously evolved into a thriving creative space with year-round activities. It has served hundreds of students, hosted multiple events and organized collaborations with other organizations.
Founded and directed by an immigrant-minority-woman, at Armentality Movement Arts Center we celebrate diversity and offer inclusion.

Ms. Armenta’s primary goal is to promote the beauty and relevance of Contemporary Dance and World Dance. In addition to Laura’s classes, Armentality hosts workshops with multiple guest artists and teachers.

“Alvin Ailey is known for saying and devoutly believing that ‘Dance came from the people and it should always be delivered back to the people’. I agree – and for over three decades I have passionately worked to make it happen”. – Laura Armenta
