Experience a Move Me Soul dance rehearsal and learn about the ways in which the group develops choreography. The informal rehearsal invites the audience to ask questions and learn about the work. MCA community partner Move Me Soul is a youth dance company that fuses technique, performance, positivity and creativity and encourages teens to move beyond their limits on and off stage.

In Progress is a series of public programs designed to give artists, thinkers, and curators a platform for developing new works and to give patrons a glimpse into the creative process. This program is produced by Gibran Villalobos, Partnerships and Engagement Liaison, in partnership with Move Me Soul.
