The mission of Gushue Moving Arts (GMA) is to create and distribute dance that touches the breadth of human experience; and to, through their work, serve dance universally, locally and personally.
Charles Gushue, Executive Director of Gushue Moving Arts, is a foolishly ambitious dance artist who continues to make choreography because of the rapid retreat of any sense of knowing how it is done. Right now he wants to know how we can, through choreography, understand new ways to be with each other. Time seems important. He always tells his collaborators it is ok to lie about what they remember if they do it convincingly; there fantasy and memory collide. His teaching experience includes college courses in modern dance, ballet, and jazz, as well as improvisation, dance composition, and physical performance making for a variety of levels and ages. His previous work has been presented in Detroit, New York, San Francisco, Baltimore and Massachusetts. His dances are designed to be adaptable, scalable and unforgettable in any setting. Charles serves alongside Rebecca Sproul Gushue as the director of Gushue Moving Arts.
