Moving In The Spirit

Moving In The Spirit

Our Mission

Moving in the Spirit is an award-winning creative youth development program that uses dance to teach young people the social, emotional and cognitive skills they need to thrive. Through programs that integrate high-quality dance instruction with performance, leadership and mentor opportunities, Moving in the Spirit impacts 250 children and teens annually in Atlanta, GA, encouraging them to overcome the obstacles they face each day and realize their highest potential.

 

Ultimately, students graduate from Moving in the Spirit as confident, resilient compassionate leaders, poised to succeed beyond the stage and make a difference in their own communities.

 

Our Philosophy

At Moving in the Spirit, we believe every child deserves to grow within a community that is rich in cultural assets, caring role models and safe places to learn. We exist to create opportunities for youth who might otherwise lack access to after-school enrichment programs, especially those focused on the arts. Moving in the Spirit is open to all, regardless of dance experience. We provide our programs for a nominal fee, and need-based financial aid is available.

 

Our History

Moving in the Spirit began in 1986 as the hopeful vision of Dana Lupton and Leah Mann, who believed they could unite their love for dance with their commitment to social justice. They were soon joined by Genene Stewart, who brought her heart for social justice as well as her extensive dance and business expertise to the small, but mighty team. Together, they turned Moving in the Spirit into the organization it is today. What began as a dance class for a small group of girls at Stewart Avenue Shelter has now blossomed into a large and diverse organization that reaches over 250 children every week across Atlanta.

 

Highlights from our history include:

• 1996 –  Initially founded as an agency of FCS Urban Ministries, Moving in the Spirit became a separate nonprofit in 1996 and moved into its home theater, The Beam.

• 2005 –  Moving in the Spirit received a national Youth Program Award, presented by the President’s Committee on the Arts and Humanities.  Our dancers performed at the White House awards ceremony for First Lady Laura Bush, and were invited to return several months later to perform for President Bush and Liberian President, Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf.
