About Bust a Move Dance

Bust a Move Dance (BAMD) is a leading dance company for children, teens and adults with disabilities. They work with students of all ages and abilities. Classes focus on using dance as a vehicle for social and emotional awareness and development. With a conscious focus on mindfulness, students learn to stay within the present moment, set intentions and to accept and believe in themselves. Each lesson combines meditation, fitness, creative exploration and learning choreography. Their motto is Limitless, Inclusive, Love. That means creating a fun and safe environment, free of the shame and judgement so often impressed onto minority groups by a privileged status quo. This allows people with or without disabilities to enjoy limitless learning and self-expression through dance.
