Open Arms Dance Project

Open Arms Dance share their passion for transformative dance with the greater community as a reminder of shared resilience in the face of challenges. Their company of dancers include people with diverse bodies, ages, and abilities that create powerful art together. They have created several amazing films, including Root-Grow-Release-Repeat, that have earned the Syringa Award. They will be exploring the power these films have in sharing their mission beyond Boise. They have been providing affordable inclusive CommUnity dance classes that welcome people of all ages, with or without physical and intellectual disabilities.

But the best is still to come! They will launch the Open Arms Ambassador program, empowering dancers from their company to assist in teaching and public speaking. This month, Open Arms will be the artist in residence at LED’s Artist Haven, collaborating with a local choreographer. This center provides space for artists to explore and dive into their creative processes. Another collaboration with Wassmuth Center for Human Rights will present Be an Upstander, an anti-bullying curriculum using dance. An Upstander is someone who is a defender, advocate, and supporter of human rights. The project includes some 86 students, with 11 different languages spoken, films and live performances and even a mini-documentary of the whole project!

You can find their films on their YouTube channel
