Whew! It has been a long time since we reached out and let the world know what we’ve been working on (which is A LOT). Here are few highlights:
NEW NAME: For a while now we have been dying to drop the ‘(in)Motion’ from our name. It felt cumbersome and unnecessarily descriptive – plus, parenthesis are so 2008. Along with that change we commissioned a new logo from Tori Lawrence:

NEW MANAGING DIRECTOR: The seriously lovely and multi-talented Sara Nye has become the official Managing Director of RealLivePeople – but don’t worry, you’ll still see her incredible moves on stage in our next big project (more on that later).

After careful deliberation dancer Adams Berzins finally said, “Can you start a board so I can be on it already?” And thus, a few months later, we had our first meeting, which turned into our second and has already completely changed the way that I view RealLivePeople and my role in it.
Here are our wonderful board members:
