About North Park in Motion

North Park in Motion began with a grant funded by NC Wellness & Trust Fund and Fit Community. The center received $54,000 to develop active living through biking, walking and dancing. The grant ended 2010, but the department continues to offer programs for the community. The center offers dance classes that are free to dancers of all ages and all levels of experience.

If you are interested in organizing and leading your community, you are invited to join our community initiatives. Call (336) 222-5138 or stop by the center to talk with Center Director, Bobbi Ruffin, for more information.
