EXIT12 Dance Company

EXIT12 is a contemporary dance company committed to creating and performing works of high cultural significance that inspire conversations about world differences and the lasting effects of violence and conflict on communities, families, and individuals. Through movement, we educate audiences about the reality of war, advocate diversity and mutual understanding through cultural exchange, and champion the humanity and dignity of all persons.
EXIT12 supports and advances the notion that art heals and is devoted to serving those who have been touched by conflict by expressing their stories.

Veteran's Movement Workshop

Exit12's workshops and programs are designed to bridge cultural gaps through shared movement, transform traumatic experiences into expressive choreographic themes, and inspire participants to push beyond their comfort zones.

Our veteran-civilian movement workshops engage groups in movement creation, self-esteem building, empathy enrichment, and teamwork.

Workshops may lead to a public performance or an informal showing with group participants.

These workshops will be free of charge.
