Movement Center

ABOUT THE MOVEMENT CENTER
Movement Center only Logo
The Movement Center is located on the east side of the N’Namdi building. This suite of the N’Namdi Center was built to house a broad arrangement of “movement” related activities: yoga, dance, art, and events. For the past two years the space has housed a series of tenants, most recently a pop-up retail store by Detroit Is The New Black. The mission of the Movement Center is to encourage and cultivate activities that create “movement” in our community.
