Moving Company is Weber State University’s dance outreach organization, housed in the School of Performing Arts. Participation provides students with opportunities in both the creative and practical aspects of a professional dance company. Moving Company members create dance works with community partners that engage members of the WSU community and the northern Utah community as a whole.
Moving Company operates under the premise that engagement with the arts can have deep and lasting effects. The arts have the potential to engage people in ways that allow them to explore their orientation and identity. Through this arts-based experience, people better understand what matters to them, as opposed to being told what should matter.
