Your clothing donations go to support Girls in the Game’s Teen Squad teens. Teen Squad participants become leaders in their community while earning scholarship money for college. Throughout the school year, they learn the Girls in the Game curriculum in order to run workshops for younger girls while participating in their own health, sports and leadership development initiatives. We are accepting child and adult sizes.

 

+ WE SUPPORT A LOCAL NONPROFIT OF THE MONTH.

Support is both financial and physical in that we offer the organization free classes and a private movement event during their month.  We look to celebrate the organizations working to make our world a better, more interesting, safe, and artistic place. We recognize this also brings people together who would likely not ordinarily run in the same circles and supports our commitment to diversity through movement.

*During the Move-mber POP UP we are offering 25% off the November Unlimited package to anyone who donates $15 or more to The Movember Foundation and/or Salt & Light Coaliation. We are currently taking submissions for future nonprofits of the month.  Contact us to learn more about this program and how to submit your organization for consideration.

 

+ WE HOST LOCAL ARTISTS AND THEIR MAKINGS.

Our Residing Artist Program provides space, time and resources to the local arts community. Upon selection an intro is offered to determine common goals and strategize how Free Mvmt Shop can beST help the artist IN THEIR FIELD. Residencies Are not structured out of a need for a final or finished product, but the path along the way that is the process. Examples have included visual art exhibited in the space and use of the space for rehearsal, class and creating.

+ WE LAUNCHED OPEN UP ALREADY.

Open up already began as a statement campaign of good & goods.  We designed a lineup of tangible and wearable products with the honorary slogan, OPEN UP ALREADY.  Tanks, crop tops, tees, tees for kids, totes, art, and even a shower curtain. The goal WAs to spark conversation via placement in space or on self.  This campaign WAS ALSO MADE TO HELP Free Mvmt Shop “open” our doors back up to the people for the launch of 33 Days of Openness - a social series of open mic & movement events.  Picture party style, town hall esq. experiences tackling various topics of being OPEN following a movement based class or performancE. BUT SOMETHING GREATER HAPPENED AND WE ARE NOW EXPANDING THIS CAMPAIGN. WE ARE CURRENTLY DEVELOPING OPEN UP ALREADY into an initiative that provides financial assistance, programming and resources in mental health and wellness for dancers and the greater arts community.
