Moving on Center's Vision

Connecting Somatics, Performance and Social Change

Here at home in the US, and around the globe, there is a common acknowledgement that we live in a complex and critical era. As a species, humankind finds itself in a web of global interdependence and competing interests. In the face of corporate globalization, institutionalized racism, and our physical isolation in this era of technology, it is possible to feel frozen and hopeless. How will we meet the demands and prospects of the 21st century? What skills and perspectives will support our navigation of these turbulent straits?

Now more than ever, Moving On Center feels an immense need to provide tools for individuals, groups, and entire communities to assess our own habits and patterns, to find connections across these divides, and to allow for REAL change to occur from the inside out. Through bridging the healing and performing arts for social change, we strive to offer a pathway to LIVING the world we desire. Remembering the words of Emma Goldman: "If I can't dance, it's not my revolution." We offer this curriculum as a doorway to a sense of inner balance, deepened communication, understanding, and an integration of our reflective and expressive selves.

Moving On Center has been a pioneer of holistic and interdisciplinary education for over a decade. We look forward to sharing this with you.
