At Local Motion Project, our mission is to bring people together in dynamic, collective movement experiences that effect personal growth and social change. We strive to bring diverse dance experiences to our community. We engage with people through education, participation, and observation. We center dance as a vehicle for expression, connection, and human understanding.
We strive to remove barriers that harm, discriminate, and exclude. We acknowledge the ways systemic racism, and other types of oppression and inequities show up in the dance field. We are actively pursuing a future for dance education that includes students diverse in race, gender, age, body-type, intellectual/developmental ability, and other aspects of identity, who are confident, collaborative, creative thinkers and engaged citizens in their communities and the world.
