Moving On is the natural evolution of Good Moves. Whereas Good Moves works to bring the discipline and beauty of dance to children, Moving On builds upon that technical foundation in a professional setting. It is choreographically rooted in the classical techniques of ballet and May O’Donnell. Annette Lewis has long believed in the importance of having a professional side to the Good Moves Company. The enthusiasm of youth and the discipline of professional dancers feed one another, making each stronger.
Kristyn McGeehan agreed to direct Moving On after choreographing extensively for Brooks & Company Dance and under her own name. She has found that her movement vocabulary and narrative style melds beautifully with the O’Donnell technique. McGeehan relishes collaboration between artists, be they musicians, visual artists, or other choreographers. As such, creating a company designed to be a collaborative entity with Good Moves seemed like a natural fit.
