Tom Truss
Youth, teens and adults of all ages, families welcome!
Dance offers the unique opportunity to transcend language barriers and create new ways for people to interact and to express themselves. Moving Life Stories is a program that gathers life stories and expresses them in movement. A continuation of a project launched last year (before COVID) in partnership with VIM, MLS engages the foreign-born population that has settled in the Berkshires by providing interactive workshops which allow participants to explore ways in which they can tell their life stories and celebrate their heritage through dance.

This program will be offered in partnership with Berkshire Literacy Network and the Immigration Center. All are welcome and no dance experience is required.
