mission statement

to drive a substantive shift in the perception and practice of American dance through performance, community, and education.

our movement, our rhythm, gesture, our very identity that lies neither on this side of the ocean nor the other, not fixed in generation old or new, but dancing in that strange and uncomfortable landscape between the two, the space that has for us, become home.

Achinta s. mcdaniel, artistic director & founder
