MVLE Moves! is a collaboration between MVLE and BodyWise Dance that is currently being offered at all three of MVLE’s Community Centers for MVLE individuals and staff. This program will achieve powerful physical, social and emotional benefits for staff and clients. Additionally, the program will ‘bring the inside out and the outside in,’ creating new and dynamic community engagement opportunities.
New for 2017– Professional choreographer and director, Margot Greenlee will collaborate with clients and staff to create and perform ‘Everyday Oz.’ With references to ‘The Wiz,’ this work will be a joyful exploration of individual resilience and agile teamwork as they meet the challenges of everyday life. Cast members will include both professional performers and MVLE clients. ‘Everyday Oz’ will be performed at each of the three MVLE Community Centers and then tour to four local partner venues including the Fairfax County Government Building and the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. See details on performance dates below.
The ‘Everyday Oz’ performance funded in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts Challenge America grant program.
