about the company
Forward the Movement, a faith-driven dance company, maintains multiple avenues of impact within the Dance Community and beyond. Through quarterly performances, mission-trips, intensives, scholarships, and worship experiences, Forward is growing God’s Kingdom through the art of dance.
Since launching in December 2018, Forward has produced and performed three evening length performances to sold out Chicago audiences. Forward has performed and presented choreography in several festivals across the Midwest, including Detroit City Dance Festival, Take Up Space, Trifecta Dance Collective’s Celebration of Dance, Eisenhower Dance Detroit New Dance Fest, and Cleveland Dance Festival. As part of Forward’s passion to collaborate with organizations sharing their vision to grow the Kingdom of God, Forward accepted performance invitations from City Church Chicago’s City Chicks Night and Salt and Light Coalition’s Annual Gala.
In addition to these performances, Forward enhances their community impact through dance education and the Forward Scholarship Fund. Through Forward’s workshops and intensives, they bring highest quality training in a positive environment to foster students technique and self-worth. Forward remains dedicated to continue using using all proceeds from their self-produced shows to fund underprivileged children’s dance education in the Chicago area. Since 2018 alone, Forward has given $6,000 in scholarships to worthy underprivileged youth dancers in the Chicago area.
