Biography

MVLE Moves! is excited to debut its inaugural performance, ‘Everyday Oz’ this spring. ‘Everyday Oz’ is a family-friendly performance that partners MVLE individuals with professional performers. Equal parts zany and poetic, ‘Everyday Oz’ includes active audience participation to reveal the ways that we are smart, compassionate, brave, and creative…every day!

MVLE, Inc.’s mission is to create futures one person at a time for people with disabilities and American military veterans through employment and support services. Serving individuals from across Northern Virginia, MVLE provides opportunities for people living with disabilities and military veterans that allow them to develop to their fullest potential by participating in community life through meaningful work and support services.

In 2015 MVLE, MVLE partnered with BodyWise Dance to create the MVLE Moves! dance-movement therapy program for individuals with disabilities. This program is designed to enrich the lives of MVLE’s clients and staff through movement classes, staff training, and arts partnership development. For the 2016-2017 season, professional choreographer and director, Margot Greenlee collaborated with clients and staff to create 'Everyday Oz’. With 'Everyday Oz,' we take our successful MVLE Moves! program to the next level, giving cast members the full experience of performing a project of their own creation alongside professional performers.
