Education

In addition to our festival dance performances, we aim to broaden our societal impact via dance education opportunities for movers of all ages and demographics.

The Wisdom Project

The Wisdom Project provides dance training and the creation of new work for movers age 40 and better. This dance melee is designed to eclipse prejudice and discrimination on the grounds of a person's age with love, acceptance, and reverence of older dancers.
