Artistic Director, Lucy Bowen McCauley founded the dance company in 1996 with the commitment of making the DC Metro region a more prominent visual performing arts community, introducing thousands of residents to the beauty and joy of dance. Over the past 21 years, BMD has produced award-winning performances and been recognized for its community outreach programs.
As cultural ambassadors, Bowen McCauley’s professional dance company performs regionally, nationally and internationally. BMD has participated in International exchanges in Mexico, China, and Germany. What makes BMD’s dance company unique is the vibrancy and athleticism of its dancers. Another key differentiator is the company’s use of live music along with Lucy’s classical choreography style.
BMD steps-up to bridge the gap from dwindling arts education resources in public schools through the formation of dance residencies, in-school and after-school dance programs that serve a diverse community in DC, Virginia and Maryland.
The second community engagement program is BMD’s Dance for Parkinson’s DiseaseÒ program, which offers free, weekly dance classes to Parkinson’s patients and their care partners across six area locations.
