Vision & Mission

Artistic Team & Company

Their work appears at the intersection of contemporary dance and indie rock concert, transcending conventions of artistic form and social constructs.

Our Work

is developed through rigorous collaborative practices where the human spirit is celebrated, diverse voices are amplified and efforts toward social justice and equity are engaged through creative process and performance.

Our work evolves from  a twenty-five year practice in teaching, creating and performing dance and live original music. 

Our research and creative process employs the  meshing of contemporary dance techniques with improvisation, body with technology, precision with wild abandon, motion with live original sound and words, and theory with practice. 

Perspectives

We are an antiracist organization working to contribute to the dismantling of racist systems in America. Our investment in holding a space for radical gathering, creative action, embodied consciousness, art making and transformation is at the heart of our creative work and dance classes. 

In cultivating the dancers learning edges through equitable mindfulness, we guide movers toward seeking their kinetic, spiritual and performance potentials.
