5 Ways to Be a Sustainable Dancer | Earth Month 2023 | More Than Movement

Updated: Apr 19, 2023

Happy Earth Month! More Than Movement is celebrating by highlighting just some of the ways that you can live a more sustainable, eco-conscious lifestyle while continuing your dance journey.


1. Carry a reusable water bottle
  • At least 14 million tons of plastic end up in the ocean every year (2021)

  • Reduce your plastic waste by carrying a reusable water bottle with you! (just make sure to clean it)

2. Thrift your dance wardrobe
  • The United States wastes 21 billion pounds of textiles per year (2021)

  • Consider thrifting your next dance outfit rather than investing in fast fashion

3. Advocate for environmentally safe dance spaces
  • If you're a dance studio owner or student, advocate for an environmentally-safe dance space that provides more ventilation and reduces loud noises.

4. Carpool, take public transit, and/or walk to dance classes and events
  • Reduce your carbon footprint by carpooling with friends, taking public transit, walking, or biking.

5. Participate in local climate protests

How does Rae Studios commit to sustainability?

  • Rae Studios is well-ventilated and equipped with HEPA filters to ensure a comfortable environment.

  • If you ever forget your water bottle at home, don't worry! We have reusable mason jars in the kitchen.

  • Need to throw out your food scraps? We compost!
