Company dancers and Moving MS Study participants dancing and exploring movement while seated in chairs

GroundWorks DanceTheater's pioneering research program explores innovative ways to use dance as an intervention for individuals with chronic illness. Through collaborations with institutions like the Cleveland Clinic and Cleveland State Univerity, our 'Moving MS' research program explores the physical, expressive, and therapeutic potential of dance for people with Multiple Sclerosis.

“Our eyes were opened to abilities that we thought lost but were merely dormant...having professional dancers work with us showed us what we could be and allowed us to relish what we are. We entered timidly and left impassioned and free.”
