sharing stories through movement that inspire conversation

Donate to support ParadiseMoves in our journey of bringing 'Enough' to new audiences!


ParadiseMoves shares stories through movement that inspire conversation.


Words are tricky and don't always capture what we truly mean to say, that's why we dance. Using the universal language of movement as a means of storytelling allows our audience to feel first and think later.  


You don't have to be a dancer to understand and appreciate ParadiseMoves. We welcome audience members from all walks of life. We embrace inclusiveness and accessibility in ALL art—to share everyone's story. We create work that invites all folks regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, ability, socio-economic status, and national identity into our world.


Our unique choreographic style fuses acting and dance techniques and values honesty and collaboration above all else. We aim to provoke thought, discover meaning, and cultivate empathy. We share stories that inspire change, ask difficult questions, and give voice to those who need to be heard.


Our work creates conversations within communities; we aim to share and not to tell. 


So, come with us and move and be moved!

" We create art to start the conversations we otherwise don't know how to."
