Moving Stories

Six dancers from the acclaimed Beverly Dance Company travel to some of the most devastated regions the world over—places torn apart by war, extreme poverty, or sexual trafficking. Their goal is simple: Over the course of a single week, they work with at-risk youth to teach them an improvised dance routine. A showcase of the transcendent, language barrier-shattering power of movement, Moving Stories does exactly what it says in the title—move you through its story of ecstatic, empathetic creativity.
