Our Essence

Cleo Parker Robinson Dance 1970-2021

We use the universal language of dance to honor the African Diaspora, explore the human condition, champion social justice, unite people of all ages and races, and ultimately celebrate the complexity of life through movement.

Come dance with us!

We offer technique and movement classes for all ages and skill levels! From African to Hip Hop, Ballet to Zumba, online and in person.

A Message From Cleo

Our warmest welcome to you all! As members of our village you have entered a place with One Spirit/Many Voices. What a time we’ve all had over these recent months, with so many changes in our daily lives. Still, we’ve kept on dancing in new and innovative ways, with many of you dancing right along with us. I’ve been known to say that “Dance is just life out loud.” That’s more true than ever these days – so let’s DANCE and take these next steps TOGETHER!

You’ll find that our website has added some new spaces as we expand our virtual world to stay connected.

For students of all levels and backgrounds, we have movement and fitness classes in many genres.

For educators in dance and other disciplines, we not only have movement classes, but are adding useful history, interviews, stories, and cultural content from our archives as well as performances and interviews.

We are delighted to share this virtual world will you, although we very much look forward to being back together as soon as possible.

In the spirit of the dance,
Cleo Parker Robinson
