Founded in 2015, Community Movers is a 13-member board of representatives for students of the Department of Dance. The board is comprised of undergraduate and graduate students, with one staff and one faculty advisor. The purpose of this honorary organization is to support the student body within the dance department academically and creatively; provide guidance and motivation through peer mentorship; encourage students throughout the academic school year with socials; create a non-judgmental space for students to feel acknowledged, respected, and encouraged; and provide opportunities for dance students to emerge as leaders within the community.
