Moving in the Spirit

Dana Lupton and Leah Mann have been empowering young women through dance since 1986. The transformational energy and self-esteem that formal dance training develops is measurable. Making studio time available to young girls (and boys) in Atlanta, on a regular basis, has been the driving force behind Moving in the Spirit.

Since 2012, The Chelko Foundation has partnered with Moving the Spirit both fiscally and through volunteer efforts connected with Glow in Motion and the Mentor Program, Leading Ladies. Raising awareness of critical issues and promoting creative, positive outcomes.
