The Indianapolis Movement Arts Collective, formerly Motus Dance Theatre, is a non-profit movement arts organization dedicated to supporting and connecting the Indianapolis community through shared movement experiences – because every human can dance. We are committed to creating a safe, inviting space for the Indianapolis community to engage with movement in many different ways, fostering curiosity, exploration, and play

• We offer engaging classes and workshops for movers of all interests and levels.

• We encourage the creation of homegrown dance-works through The Makers Lab.

• We provide opportunities for professional growth for the local movement community by hosting workshops and performances with seasoned performance artists.

• We aim to cultivate thoughtful, intelligent dance audiences by providing a framework for them to engage with  movement artists and their work in meaningful ways.
