About

Every body can dance…but not everybody is ready to get out on the dance floor and do it. That’s where Big Moves steps in…

Founded in 2000, Big Moves is the only producing, training, and service organization in the world dedicated to getting more people of all sizes into the dance studio and up on stage. It started in San Francisco with a single day-long dance clinic. Since then, Big Moves has expanded to encompass a modern choreography commission, award-winning performing ensembles on two coasts, and a touring dance revue. We offer tons of dance workshops taught by size-accepting instructors, who have been trained to create an environment in which beginning dancers of all shapes and sizes can find their feet and discover the joy of dance. And our shows present a vision of a world transformed, where exciting performances can and do come from artists who resist the narrow dance-world norms.

Your Big Moves Boston blogging fatties are:

Marina – Our Fearless Leader, fatty-in-charge, creator of Big Moves, generator of fabulousness…you get the idea.

(Dirty) Nellie – Ostensibly the “nice” one, Nellie can drink you under the table, and she will break it off if you try and grab her without her consent.

Coquette takes life by the cherry

Coquette – She was born in the wagon of a travelin’ show, her mama had to dance for the money they’d throw. Papa would do whatever he could; preach a little gospel, sell a couple bottles of Dr. Good. Also, she has a twitter, which many people seem to be enjoying.
