Led by renowned architects Perkins+Will, with support from KSi and WSP, the architectural design of Moving in the Spirit's new home involved 64 stakeholders -- from students, alumni, and parents to board members, staff, artistic directors and community partners.
The state-of-the-art facility will double Moving in the Spirit’s enrollment from 250 to 500 students. Positioned directly next to the MARTA rail line, the facility will meet our community’s need for transit-accessibility.
A 138-seat theater will serve as a resource to Atlanta’s professional dance community and broaden Moving in the Spirit’s reach to an additional 15,000 families each year through performances and workshops.
On March 13, 2020, Moving in the Spirit received our certificate of occupancy for our new home, days before our city shut down due to the coronavirus pandemic.
We offered virtual and hybrid programming during that time, streamed live from our beautiful new studios. We look forward to welcoming our students for in-person classes in the Fall of 2021.

Once the theatre opens, you will receive a commemorative replica of your beautiful bird as our gift of thanks to you. In addition to receiving your twin bird, your name will be installed within the theatre to reflect your amazing support!
