Get Involved

Movement Research accomplishes its mission through a range of programs that annually serve its program participants, including artists, students, and audience members. Ongoing classes and workshops are taught by artist educators and innovators; creative residencies are offered for choreographers and movement-based artists; semi-annual festivals bring together leaders in the field; and publications and public events provide artists with forums for discourse on a broad range of issues.

Movement Research’s programs are served by an infrastructure that is ready to adapt and respond to artists’ needs; a dynamic, interactive home base for experimentation and the development of new work; a creative community hub for critical dialogue; and a launch point for artist-driven initiatives. They invite artist participation throughout the organization, helping to build leadership in dance and culture and ensuring that Movement Research maintains an ongoing connection with the perspectives of artists in its community.
