Our Mission

Our mission is to increase the presence of dance in Northwest schools and communities by developing partnerships, building bridges between dance and the schools, honoring children's natural learning styles, and enlivening classrooms through dance.

We meet our mission with three primary approaches:A CoMotion in Motion

  1. Highly-trained dance teaching artists provide integrated, standards-based dance residencies in classrooms with embedded assessments.
  2. Professional performers tour live, energetic, contemporary dance performances that are artistic, educational, exciting and interactive.
  3. Resources and training are made available to classroom and dance educators.
