Changing the World Through Movement with Caitlin Trainor

Caitlin Trainor is the Founder of Dancio, a platform that offers on-demand ballet and contemporary dance classes. Caitlin believes movement is a way for us to achieve more embodied, self-aware lives and to understand the experiences of others.

In an increasingly materialistic world, Caitlin recognizes just how radical dance can be. Our society seeks to separate us from our bodies, so coming back to ourselves over and over again is an act of protest against expectations and norms. Along with sharing her journey as a creative entrepreneur, choreographer, and teacher—Caitlin explores the future of video in dance, and how movement through video will be a key tool in making teaching, rehearsing, and conditioning more effective. 

Although 2020 is an incredibly difficult time for dancers, Caitlin’s message is one of hope. We will always need dance—and we will keep coming back to it time and time again in whatever form we need to create.
