Register for Classes

GLOW in Motion (GLOW stands for Girls Leading Our World) is Moving in the Spirit’s intermediate level program for 9-12-year-old girls. Created to empower young women, GLOW in Motion classes take place September through May on Moving in the Spirit’s MAC Stage. Moving in the Spirit classes for the 2017-18 program year begin on Monday, September 11.

GLOW in Motion members:

  • Meet three hours weekly to study modern dance, ballet and choreography
  • Create choreography with their peers to explore their unique artistic voices
  • Deepen their understanding of dance terminology, anatomy and the key elements of dance performance and structures
  • Actively apply problem-solving, critical thinking, positive coping and leadership skills to classroom situations
  • Train with female guest artists from Atlanta’s professional dance community who conduct workshops, set choreography and serve as role models
  • Present works they rehearse and create in their very own show, and in our year-end show at the Rialto Center for the Arts at Georgia State University

GLOW in Motion members must complete a placement audition at the beginning of the year and sign a “commitment contract” outlining their goals and responsibilities.

As developing young leaders, GLOW in Motion girls are dynamically engaged in the creation of choreography and the planning of program activities. GLOW in Motion members also take part in monthly educational workshops covering topics such as puberty and health, self-esteem and peer pressure, stereotypes and prejudices, and conflict resolution training. Members of the GLOW in Motion can also take advantage of our Mentor Program, which matches students with adult volunteers who provide our dancers with social and academic encouragement while exposing them to new cultural experiences.

Class Attire:

Girls should wear black footless tights or leggings and a black leotard.
