Staying Standing / Eli Percy

Awakening Movement was created as a home for artists in the heart of New York City in 2013. We are friends and artists united by our love of Jesus and of dance. While each artist has their own story, we find a common bond in our life’s dedication to an artistic craft, navigating a dance field and eager to see truth, beauty, and wholeness on the journey.

In our efforts to meet the needs of this community, we offer donation-based technique classes, discussion forums, performances and new work commissions. Awakening Movement exists as a safe haven where dancers can explore their art and spirituality to then move beyond themselves and share with others. We are in the process of expanding our vision beyond New York City to offer performances, youth programs and support for artists in cities across the United States.
