Moving Stories is currently partnering with Moving Steps. 

Moving Steps was created to inspire, create community and provide a forum for artistic expression for formerly incarcerated women and women in recovery through dance.  With its origins firmly established since 2011 at the South Middlesex Correctional Center in Framingham Massachusetts with dance classes and a performance lab, Moving Steps has evolved into a touring dance company which serves as a bridge to enable these women to establish and maintain a vibrant connection to dance and community after release or while in recovery.  Working in collaboration with professional choreographers, musicians, actors and performance artists, Moving Steps strives to foster artistic expression and creative development while cultivating personal agency and responsibility in a nurturing and supportive environment.

Moving Stories is currently partnering with Moving Steps Foundation, working towards a production to be premiered at the Dance Complex, Dec. 1st and 2nd: https://www.movingstoriesfoundation.com/performance/

Company member Kristian Wilt...

The dance program has been for me a great and serious reminder of the artistic and cultural part of my life. I remembered feelings, my love of music and dance – things I had long forgotten.

Three years ago, if someone would have told me I would be part of a prison dance class, learning and helping to teach choreography, I never would have believed it. The hour-long dance sessions do more for my self-esteem and recovery than any other activity.
