“My students were riveted! This has more impact than you know."

Expeditionary Learning Academy at Moylan School teacher

Recognized as a national model, Moving Matters! brings dance, movement, visual art, song, and storytelling into underserved classrooms to help students develop lifelong resilience skills through artistic expression and collaborative creativity. The arts provide healthy ways for students to process emotions, reconnect with each other, and enhance cognitive learning.

JDPP has offered Moving Matters!™  residencies at Parkville Community School since 1996, and at Expeditionary Learning Academy at Moylan elementary school (ELAMS) since 2020. We have partnered with Trinity College to host final performances since 1995.

Moving Matters!™ residencies culminate in a joyful multi-classroom collaborative performance shared with peers and family.
