Your Impact Stories
Inspiring Alexandria to Get Up and Move!

"At our core, Local Motion Project (LMP) is about bringing people together in dynamic, collective movement experience to effect personal and social change. During the COVID-19 pandemic, our definition of and methods for gathering had to evolve. With the support of ACT for Alexandria and Spring2ACTion donors, LMP was able to develop new skills to offer virtual and outdoor classes, produce creative dance videos for ACPS elementary students, and continue to pay dance artists in a time when many arts organizations have struggled. The Spring2ACTion community of donors has always been special to LMP as they have lifted up the important presence of dance in our city."

-Kylie Murray, Local Motion Project

Throughout January and February, ACT received incredible impact stories from Spring2ACTion 2020, which are now featured on the Spring2ACTion website. You can still add your story - we will be sharing them on social media and with donors.
