Indianapolis Movement Arts Collective is a non-profit movement arts organization dedicated to supporting and connecting the Indianapolis community through shared movement experiences – because every human can dance. We are committed to creating a safe, inviting space for the Indianapolis community to engage with movement in many different ways, fostering curiosity, exploration, and play.  Meet our instructors and staff!

Indianapolis Movement Arts Collective relies on donations and grants to run our non-profit organization.  If our mission MOVES you, join our community of supporters by donating, in any amount, today. We would be so grateful.

WHY SHOULD YOU SUPPORT IMAC?

  • We cultivate a non-competitive, inclusive environment where people of diverse interests and backgrounds can engage with dance/movement in a safe and supported way.

  • We are the only place in the city that offers somatic movement practices alongside traditional dance to cultivate well being of the whole self – body, mind, and spirit.

 

  • We are a resource for Indianapolis’s artists. Through our Makers Lab program, we support artists and fellow arts organizations by providing them with the space and time to learn, grow, get inspired, experiment, and create new work.

 

  • We invite nationally and internationally recognized visiting artists to Indianapolis to provide accessible, professional, and innovative training opportunities for artists and the community at large. In the last year we welcomed Maayan Sheinfeld of Batsheva Dance Company, Chicago physical comedian and clown Molly Brennan, and New York-based dance artist Jess Pretty.

 

  • We value collaboration and partner with a variety of community organizations. Our partners include, but are not limited to:

    • Martin Luther King Community Center

    • Newfields

    • Girls, Inc.

    • NoExit Performance

    • Indy Convergence

    • Butler University

    • Ball State University

    • Indiana University, Bloomington

    • African American Arts Institue

 

  • You'll be in good company!
