The company annually presents contemporary dance concerts at its Metro DC area homes, The Alden and American Dance Institute. The company also tours nationally bringing its “charming and poignant” work to other communities (The New York Times).

The company bridges the gap between artist and audience through online media content, educational opportunities, and carefully facilitated pre and post show discussions.

The company nurtures pre-professional and professional dance artists through ongoing residencies with universities, conservatories, and our own intensive workshops.

Professional Development
The company supports the developing voices of other choreographers through curated and facilitated works-in-progress series as well as special commissioning projects by guest choreographers.
