In 2007 Rebecca received her Associates Degree in Dance from The Nutmeg Conservatory for the Arts in Torrington Connecticut, worked with the international dance company MOMIX, and relocated to her native city of Cleveland in 2009 where she danced with Morrison Dance and Verb Ballets.
In 2012 Megan received her BFA in Performance and Choreography from Ohio University School of Dance where she received an in-depth study in the process of dance making in the modern idiom, choreographed numerous original works, and studied at the Laban Centre in Greenwich London.
Having returned to Cleveland, both have decided to venture on a new path merging their unique backgrounds forming what they call The Movement Project. Their company believes in the creative process as an on-going practice constantly changing and advancing in many ways. They value the importance of authentic and creative movement as well as the collaborative efforts of their dancers.The Movement Project holds a strong value in collaborating with all forms of art/media, welcoming all artistic voices to their works.
"The dancer is not just a body in our eyes; they are a necessity to the creative process and a "voice" we value with high regard. We believe in redefining the dancer body and rejecting the predetermined notion of what dancers should look like, dance like, and what they ought to be capable of doing."
