¬ŹHUMBLE BEGINNINGS

Movement With A Message started in a small office in 2006 with a group of students from Co-Founder, Connie Jakab’s Decidedly Jazz class while waiting to go on stage at a local church to perform a piece on homelessness. Co-Founder Oliver Reyes made a lighthearted comment about starting a company and from there, the rest is history. From modest performances in churches to performing in renowned theatres such as Theatre Grand Junction, we are still doing what we did ten years ago; producing our movement with a message.
