For 15 years, Ananya Dance Theatre has combined the metaphor and poetry of contemporary choreography with a philosophy of social justice to tell stories about women's lives and dreams in a global context.

We believe in the transformative power of dance, and create original, contemporary dance theater at the intersection of artistic excellence and social justice.

In 2020, our team will create Dastak, I wish you me for premiere at The O’Shaughnessy at St. Catherine University, St. Paul.

During Gov. Walz’s Stay-At-Home Order, we also are offering videos of past performances and real-time dance classes online.

Following the conclusion of Stay-At-Home, we look forward to resuming in-person classes, workshops, and community salons – activities that meet at the intersection of artistic excellence and social justice.
