What is The Center for Transformative Movement?
Our 'mission’ at The Center for Transformative Movement is to inspire people in our community to understand and EXPERIENCE FOR THEMSELVES, the ability expressive movement and dance has to help people de-stress, energize and rejuvenate themselves. We do that by creating classes, workshops and events that bring people together around substantive, FUN and transformative activities.

Bringing Dance to the Public Realm - Bandshell Boogie
Sensual Dance - Primal Elegance
We have found through experience dancing with thousands of people, and, from our scientific research, that dance is one of the most effortless and fun ways to feel better about themselves and more connected with others and the world around them. Dance has been documented to be an easily-accessible antidote to the unprecedented levels of our society-wide epidemics of:
Motion As Medicine
In our efforts to bring more societal awareness about the many benefits of dance, The Center for Transformative Movement has begun to conduct research exploring the physical, emotional and meta-physical benefits and RELEASE that dance can provide for people from all walks of life - including both those new to dance and other forms of creative movement as well as with seasoned dancers.
Through our research, we have found that participants consistently report a part of themselves that wants, and actually craves, more creative expression, whatever that might look like in their own life. We are all on a spectrum in the desire for this type of expression and all can have the opportunity to stretch to our creative edges, no matter where we fall on the spectrum of creative self- expression. We look forward to continued scientific exploration of this desire in individuals for increased creative self-expression.
