“It’s brilliant how dance brings people together. I am so grateful that Movement Exchange plans to come to India. There are so many people that are hungry for dancing here. The best gift that one can think of giving is the gift of dance. We are really looking forward to this exchange, this is a dream come true for us.” -Amit Shaw, Founder DNA Danceworks

Movement Exchange is thrilled to partner with DNA Danceworks in Kolkata. Founded by Amit and Dorothy Shaw, this dance company is providing future generations of dancers with instruction in various dance forms. They are pioneers in their community, igniting more education and opportunities for aspiring youth.

Ek Prayyas—“an effort” in Hindi— supports, educates, and develops the lives of underprivileged children in West Bengal. Housing 130 children between the ages of four and fourteen, Ek Prayaas offers both academic and vocational training, with a mission to advance “literacy into learning.”

Movement Exchange will provide dance education to Ek Prayaas in alliance with the local Kolkata dance school, DNA Danceworks. We believe the best way to immerse our sustainable model into new communities is by first developing partnerships with local established dance leaders.
