For 17 years, Ananya Dance Theatre has combined the metaphor and poetry of contemporary choreography with a philosophy of social justice to tell stories about the lives and dreams of Black and brown women and femmes 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.

We invite your financial support for “work that captures the times while centering women warriors” – in the words of one audience member.
