Dance Piece in a Day


Motus Dance Theatre is now officially the Indianapolis Movement Arts Collective (IMAC). We extend boundless gratitude to all who contributed to the rich history of Motus Dance Theatre, since its’ founding in 2003. This name change does not signify an ending but rather a natural transformation to an organization who will dedicate its time, energy and resources to supporting and connecting the Indianapolis community through shared movement experiences – because every human can dance. We invite you to come as you are and MOVE.

Ongoing & Upcoming

Night Out Program – Continuing to cement our partnership with the Martin Luther King Center, Lauren Curry leads the Night Out program, which is generously funded by the GPD foundation and seeks to supplement the humanities learning in School 43, attended by most of the MLK students. Up to 10 students accompanied by a parent or guardian will attend 3 cultural events in Indianapolis, creating opportunities for child and adult to engage around the arts, think critically about what they see and engage in rich discussions.
