Nomadic Artist ~ Appreciate.Cultivate.Expose.
We were born out of the concept of coming together to promote great dance, genuine human connection, a passion for the arts and love and acceptance of all artists, art forms and its audiences.

We are a non-profit, professional dance company of mindful artists. Nomadic provides a platform for the current and future members to have their dance talents appreciated, cultivated and exposed through performance and outreach instruction opportunities. We have been successfully admitted and showcased in many choreographer’s showcases throughout DC and Virginia since our inception in 2014. We are happy to be a resident dance company for Virginia Ballet Company in Fairfax, Va (virginiaballetcompany.org). We have performed at the Howard Theater, Jack Guidone Theater, Workhouse Theater, James Lee Theater, Ernst Community Cultural Center and Dance Loft on 14th. Every summer we provide free dance instruction to a group of under-served children. We are a dance company that exposes its adult adult members to personal artistic growth and public recognition for their art, while engaging with the youth to cultivate artistic understanding in under-served children and families in our area, providing an opportunity where it may not be afforded or accessed.

Please email headshot, danceshot and resume to our email, nomadicartistco.
