Open Arms Dance Project: Guided by Creation & Collaboration

Open Arms Dance Project is a community of dancers with diverse bodies, ages, abilities, and dance experience creating powerful art together in Boise since 2008.  

They perform in unexpected and exciting spaces that increase their visibility in the community: under stage lights, in the Idaho State Capitol rotunda, in lobbies, through crosswalks, on sidewalks, and even at the Anne Frank Memorial in the rain!  

Their mission is to create greater joy and compassion in the community with dance that opens hearts, minds, and arms. Open Arms sees everyone’s body as a dancer’s body, believing in joyful, empowering movement, and treating each other as equals. 

Learn more about their organization and performances on their website.

The Pettitt Group is thrilled to continue supporting local artists and local arts-based nonprofits.
