Every Donation Makes a Difference


As a non-profit organization, Island Moving Co. depends on the support of the community to ensure that everyone has access to great art.

Your gifts provide supplies and studio space for students and their teachers; fund our ever-growing scholarship fund, allowing students from under-served communities in Newport to attend classes for free; and support our dancers and program staff who work to ensure that everyone can get connected to great dance. With your generosity, you are contributing to the landscape of dance, performance, and the arts, yet also retaining the unique traditions which make Newport and Rhode Island special.

Consider a gift to IMC and ensure that the performances, educational programming, and outreach work we do continues on.
