Learn a few new moves while you’re physically distancing!

To break out of your isolation blues and get you dancing, Island Moving Company and the Newport Academy of Ballet are offering a valuable thread of continuity and social connection with our new Climb the Walls! series. These FREE, 30-minute live micro-classes are a great way to engage with new and wonderful things to watch and do!

Climb the Walls provides both live-streamed and recorded content available through IMC’s website and social media platforms, as well as through our community partner What’s Up NEWP that you can do at home.
