The Movement Exchange Dance Studio Opens in Pawtucket
Monday, August 26, 2013
The center will offer classes and creative workshops for children, families, and individuals at beginner through professional levels. The Exchange's teachers are working artists, dancers, actors, composers and musicians passionate about making and teaching their craft.
The Movement Exchange is committed to growing with the needs of its local and statewide community by sharing knowledge, creative process and performance events.
An space for artists and the community
“I wanted to open a space where artists could have the time and space to create work and also share their joy for moving with the Rhode Island and surrounding communities in a fun, open environment. I am very excited to begin this venture with co-founder Melody Ruffin-Ward in such a vibrant and growing community,” says Stephanie Turner, Owner of The Movement Exchange.
“As a beginner I find the atmosphere at The Movement Exchange to be very welcoming for dance exploration on any level and with any background,” says Oleg Asserin, a Providence resident. “Creativity is encouraged, every teacher is very attentive to their students, and I got a lot of new ideas and encouragement for creating dances.”
The Movement Exchange offers a wide variety of classes and workshops, including:
Beginner–Advanced Modern Dance
Family Dance Jam
West African Mande
Creative Dance for Boys
Creative Dance for Children
Dance Theory and History courses
The Movement Exchange is also available as an affordable rehearsal space and intimate performance venue. It will hold several events throughout the year. A collaborative performance will premiere in Fall/Winter 2013 and will feature the work of three dancers, a visual artist, a composer and a culinary artist. Together, they will create a moving gallery using set improvisational structures that will transform and bring new life to each art form.
