Students learning to use the park-itecture in a new way, Central Park, 2012
The Movement Creative is a community of parkour and movement practitioners and instructors in the New York City region.
Parkour is a movement discipline that celebrates our city and our public spaces. Our practitioners have a unique relationship with the urban environment and its architectures. The city is our playground: We run, jump, climb, balance, and swing our way through the environment, learning how to adapt to our situation and think creatively. Through our training, we not only grow stronger as individuals, but also come to respect and value the potential of the world we live in.
As an organization, we work to spread movement through outdoor classes and school programming. Alongside parkour, we promote the importance of healthy living, self-expression, community, personal safety, and environmental responsibility.
