"I founded this company with my best friend so that we could explore how movement could bring us closer; in our friendship and within our dance community. It has been rewarding to develop a Board that shares in our vision to make dance an accessible, thoughtful vehicle of communication centered on humans and their relationships. "

Jennifer Cleary (Board Member, Fundraising) 

Dance Educator, Owner/Founder of Soul Centered Movement LLC, NDEO 

"Something I love about RE|dance's work is the way it touches deeply on what it means to be human. Sadness humor, joy, grief, wonder...the roller coaster of human experience is intrinsic in the movement, language, and music in every piece."
