Open Arms Dance Project is a multigenerational and inclusive modern dance company; welcoming people of all ages -- with and without disabilities.
Open Arms dancers range in age from 7-70+ years young. Some dancers have physical and/or intellectual disabilities, and others do not. All are respected for what they add to the group, whether that be youthful energy, humor, wisdom, dance skills, or a positive attitude.
Our dance company rehearses and performs September through May. Tuition is on a sliding scale from $20-$55/month. Members contribute what they feel is a sustainable amount for their finances as well as Open Arms Dance Project's continued operation.
We perform about five times each season. Our previous shows have included: the 2009 Special Olympics World Winter Games; Idaho Women's Fitness Celebration; STEP (Student Transition Education Program) fundraiser; Treefort Music Festival; Down's Syndrome Buddy Walk; Idaho Special Olympics Opening Ceremonies; Jump & Jive Food Drive; Anser Charter School show; School of Balance dance concerts; and site specific flash-mobs wherever we want to move the community towards greater compassion!
