A contemporary retelling of the Wizard of Oz story, this dance-theater work partners MVLE individuals with professional performers. Equal parts zany and poetic, Everyday Oz includes active audience participation to reveal the ways that we are smart, compassionate, brave,
and creative . . . every day.
BodyWise Dance has partnered with MVLE to lead weekly movement arts programming for adults with intellectual and physical disabilities. Our dance classes offer participants FUN exercise, personal expression, camaraderie, and creativity. We dance to Michael Jackson, Phillip Glass, Madonna and Prokofiev. A recent improvisation took us on an underwater journey past colorful jellyfish. Anything is possible when we set minds and bodies free.
Colleagues at A Place to Be provide music therapy and collaborate on annual productions. In the words of McFadden and Whitehead, “Ain’t no stoppin’ us now. We’re on the Move!”
