Our City

Turning the Wheel Missoula has been offering community building spaces through embodied self in a variety of contexts and events in Missoula since 2001. We design multiage programs using movement, art, storytelling, and play to awaken the body and weave communities with students, teachers, elders,  artists, and professionals working in the frontlines of society's wellbeing. 

Bring us to your Pre-K-12 school and college classrooms, staff meetings, professional development programs, symposiums, retreats, celebrations, strategic planning sessions, elder homes.


Our programs can positively impact the wellbeing and connectivity within groups of people sharing a common purpose and seeking to refresh the way in which they approach their engagement with the world.
