Our first performance was in partnership with Moving Steps,
a dance company comprised of previously incarcerated women, and women in recovery.
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.
