Gathering people of different ages, backgrounds, gender, on Sundays Oct 2nd & 9th courtesy of  the generous donation of Warehouse 21– together we shared stories and made haiku, still poses, movements, rhythms, and spoken word to deepen understanding of this element and its impact on our lives,

With subsequent scholarships to School of American Ballet in NYC and North Carolina School of the Arts, The Rock (PA), and summer trainings with American Ballet Theater and Boston Ballet programs, 19 year old Ruben is on his way to complete a year long an advanced training at the world renowned Bolshoi Ballet academy in Moscow this October! The tuition of 20,000 has been partially raised by communities in Massachusetts, and young New Mexican dancers of New Mexico School for the Arts, Moving People, Moving Arts Espanola and Aspen Santa Fe Ballet (including several of Ruben’s talented siblings) donated their talents in a performance which helped raise $6000 additional dollars – and counting. DANCING EARTH members donated a portion of their hard earned dance fees towards Ruben’s journey. If you would like to support Ruben’s scholarship fund please contact movingartsespanola@hotmail.com
