Moving in the Spirit's Beloved Holiday Event Returns on December 10, 2022

Moving in the Spirit’s most beloved event, the Holiday Store, is back in full force after our pandemic pause!

Throughout our program year, young people at Moving in the Spirit earn points for meeting their dance and leadership commitments — i.e., being on time for class, dressing in their uniform, and staying focused, to name a few. 

At the Holiday Store, they use those points to “buy” gifts for their families and friends, reinforcing their sense of hard work, compassion, and giving.

Volunteers and donors transform our studios into a winter wonderland where students carefully shop for their loved ones and celebrate their accomplishments.

This festive and meaningful event is stocked entirely with donated items and brought to life by the generosity of our community. To get involved with the Holiday Store, you can: sign up to volunteer or donate new or new/never used items.


The Holiday Store provides numerous heartwarming opportunities for volunteers to participate and interact with our dancers.

We need volunteers on Friday, December 9th – Saturday, December 10th to help children as personal shoppers; wrap gifts; serve as “cashiers”; and help set up and clean up the store.

Volunteer Sign-Up Instructions:

To volunteer, please view our volunteer shift options and select your preference. Morning and afternoon options are available!

Note: This year, volunteers are required to complete a background check. During the process, you will have the option to contribute to the cost of your background check.
