No Mirror Movement | www.nomirrormovement.org


“Getting dancers out of the mirror and back into their bodies.”

Under the direction of Samantha Ethridge, No Mirror Movement is a community whose mission is to get dancers out of the mirror and back into their bodies by using dance as a tool to build self-worth, promote body acceptance and challenge society’s deeply held myths of beauty and health.

No Mirror Movement does this by offering programs that are inclusive, creative and focused on providing dancers with accurate information and helpful skills to foster holistic wellness: mind, body and spirit.
