Community Partnerships

Word Dance Theater partners with local charitable organizations to bring targeted classes, workshops and performing arts experiences to communities in need of physical, spiritual, emotional and financial support.



RESTORE: Movement for Health at Hope Connection for Cancer Support 

Every 4th Thursday Cynthia Word teaches RESTORE: Movement for Health. RESTORE classes are a unique combination of seated breath work with gentle stretching movements, leading to standing balance work and ending with joyous and simple movement through the studio, all accompanied by beautiful music.

This year we have also had the honor of providing performing arts experiences and movement classes to help the following community organizations:

  • Washington School for Girls, an all-girls, tuition free private school located in Anacostia, Washington, DC, dedicated to providing intellectual challenge, respect for diversity, and support for the spiritual, social and emotional growth of each student.
  • The Phillips Collection, an exceptional collection of modern and contemporary art in a dynamic environment for collaboration, innovation, engagement with the world, scholarship, and new forms of public participation.
  • National Cathedral School, an independent day school for girls in grades 4-12 that believes in the power of young women and educates them to embrace the core values of excellence, service, courage, and conscience.
  • Boston Children's Foundation | Rainbowdance, which gathers children, teachers, and parents around a parachute for one hour for the purpose of enhancing social empathy, self-confidence, and self-regulation.
  • Center for Hellenic Studies, a premier research facility within Harvard University, dedicated to the reassertion of the humanism of the ancient world, centering on Hellenic civilization in its widest sense.
  • Boston Children's Foundation, which is committed to ending trauma that perpetuates a culture of fear, maladaptation, and violdence by turning youth's natural energy towards healing activities, social empathy, and positive relationships.
  • Inner City-Inner Child, the arts education/literacy program of the historic Dumbarton Oaks providing quality arts integration and early childhood development programs to low-income, community-based early childhood centers throughout Washington, DC.
