Reserve your ticket for a front-row view to the 25th Anniversary edition, Gems from the Vault, featuring highlights from the archives. Choreographer and dancer Daniel Gwirtzman, joined by influential Company dancer Cary McWilliam (1998-2009), will offer their unique perspectives surrounding these favorite dances. Valentine’s is not all saccharine; the push and pull of relationships, the work they require, are equal ingredients. Grab a seat so you can be up close and personal to the lauded dancers.

Daniel Gwirtzman Dance Company wishes all a peaceful and joyful 2024! Making people smile. Placing one’s hands in another’s. Looking into someone’s eyes. This is the beginning of partnering. This connection is in greater demand than ever now in the world. Looking. Really seeing. Really Listening. Developing Trust. Promoting Empathy. These are the hallmarks of dance and dance education, of sharing the love of this artform and unspoken method of communication. DGDC’s programming has manifest this philosophy since our inception. As we continue into our 25th year, we continue to invest. From the very beginning we have been a teaching and performing company. As an organization, we are continuing to invest. In dancers. In collaborators. In students. In audiences. In innovative interactive programming designed to involve everyone, promote these qualities we all need, and empower youth to feel good about themselves and learn to cooperate with others.
