About Move Me Soul

Move Me Soul is youth Dance Company that fuses technique, performance and character development. Youth are empowered to “move” their limits on and off stage.

Move Me Soul was founded in 2008 by Ayesha Jaco at Austin High School on the West Side of Chicago. The program began with 30 students taking the class as a gym elective as has evolved into a full “movement,” which includes: teen apprentice and advanced apprenticeships, a teen dance ensemble and community dance engagement through its Commundance initiative.

Today hundreds of youth participate throughout Chicago in the company’s many programs and programs of its community partners such as M.U.R.A.L., Afterschool Matters, Chicago Park District and Museum of Contemporary Art. On its 10 year anniversary December 16, 2018, Move Me Soul debuted its professional company derived of young adults who began in its teen programs. December 16th has been officially declared by the City of Chicago: Move Me Soul Day Chicago.
