On Stage

Passion, energy and creativity are expressed through dance on the Danceworks stage.

Thanks to everyone who attended Danceworks Performance Company’s 2015-16 season!

Danceworks Performance Company’s 2015-16 season of concerts–which featured exciting new collaborations–explored themes from the everyday to the magical!


The Quest
Ran: May 12-15 at Next Act Theatre

Hark, all ye Appreciators of Movement, Musick and a Story well told! A collaboration with the Chant Claire Chamber Choir and Jason Powell (What’s So Funny?, Temptation’s Snare, Plugged In), this Production shall weave such familiar Fantastickal personae as the Princess, the Knight and the Dragon into a new-and quite unfamiliar-Tapestry. With a Score encompassing both canonical repertoire and newly penned Ballads, The Quest is a unique blend of the Real and the Magickal.

Footsteps, Shadows and Whispers
Ran: Nov. 5-8, 2015 at Next Act Theatre
The resident dance makers of DPC and guest choreographer Dawn Springer designed works that followed mysterious pathways, lingered in shadows and whispered secrets, in collaboration with composer Allen Russell and the Tontine Ensemble. View the playbill here.
