We believe in the transformative power of dance, and create original, contemporary dance theater at the intersection of artistic excellence and social justice.
We are creating Dastak, I wish you me for premiere at The O’Shaughnessy at St. Catherine University, St. Paul.
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.
We invite your financial support for “work that captures the times while centering women warriors” – in the words of a 2019 audience member.
