Abstract: We prove an equivariant form of Slodkowski's theorem that every holomorphic motion of a subset of the extended complex plane $ \hat{\mathbb{C}}$ extends to a holomorphic motion of $ \widehat{\mathbb{C}}$. As a consequence we prove that every holomorphic map of the unit disc into Teichmüller space lifts to a holomorphic map into the space of Beltrami forms. We use this lifting theorem to study the Teichmüller metric.
