Abstract: I discuss four key questions about Galactic Center dynamics, their implications for understanding both the environment of the Galactic MBH and galactic nuclei in general, and the progress made in addressing them. The questions are (1) Is the stellar system around the MBH relaxed? (2) Is there a “dark cusp” around the MBH? (3) What is the origin of the stellar disk(s)?, and (4) What is the origin of the S-stars?
