Rhythm n Motion

"Rhythm and Motion (RnM) is a dance company made up of a group of individuals from a broad range of dance backgrounds united in our passion and love of dance. As a tri-college group, we welcome dancers from Swarthmore, Bryn Mawr and Haverford Colleges. Rehearsals are every weekend culminating in a final performance both the fall and spring semesters. The group focuses on the African Diaspora influenced styles of dance including jazz, hip hop, salsa, and African. My experience in RnM has been nothing but positive; it is a community, a support system, and most importantly, a family.

I am constantly amazed by the talent and dedication each dancer brings to the group. RnM is a great opportunity for students looking to meet people from all three colleges while at the same time giving  students the opportunity to perform in Swarthmore's beautiful LPAC mainstage theater. Students are the heart and soul of the company taking on leadership roles and choreographing the pieces we perform. We are lucky to have such positive recognition from the campus. I have never performed for more enthusiastic audiences than those here at Swarthmore.

It's hard to articulate how much the people in RnM have become such an important and supportive part of my experience here at Swarthmore. The talent, intelligence, and diligence of every single dancer in the group challenges me and encourages my growth as a student, a dancer, and an individual."
