“Moving in the Spirit is a family. It’s not just a business or a dance company or a place that you go. My friends at college talk about how they aren't really close with the people from their dance company, that it was just a place for them to learn technical skills. It's quite the opposite for me, and I'm really appreciative."

“I started dancing at Moving in the Spirit when I was 13 years old. I was taking ballet classes elsewhere and also dancing at school. The difference for me at Moving in the Spirit was that it wasn’t just about the classes, it was also about leadership."

“Moving in the Spirit is really like family to me. They still provide support and acceptance and honesty to this day. I got involved through my cousin, Chris, who was dancing there. Not every kid wanted to dance, so they created a program where you could learn about lighting and production instead."
