Expressive Movement Initiative (EMI)

The Expressive Movement Initiative (EMI) is an organization that aims to introduce children with developmental disabilities to the art of creative movement through weekly dance classes. The first division of EMI is a successful program at the University of Oklahoma that has enabled the children of the program to significantly improve across a spectrum of social, emotional, and physical domains. To bring this organization to UCLA, we will utilize the assistance of the founder, who is now an LA resident, as well as a team of undergraduate volunteers who will foster a personal, one-on-one teaching and mentoring relationship with each of the children. At the end of the academic year, we will hold an annual performance to showcase the growth of the students for their family and friends.
