a performing and teaching company


The Company has enjoyed numerous residencies at multiple high schools including Manhattan’s Beacon High School, the Fiorello H. LaGuardia H.S. of Music & Art and Performing Arts, Talent Unlimited, and the School of the Arts (SOTA) in Rochester, New York. At both LaGuardia and SOTA students performed the Company’s acclaimed dance Encore. In 2011 the Company choreographed on DanceWave Company ll, a Brooklyn-based dance troupe of teenagers selected by audition from all over New York City.



The Company began a relationship with The Yard, a renown colony for the performing arts on Martha’s Vineyard, in 1998, working with high school students at the Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School in Oak Bluffs, and during summers directing Explorations, an intensive workshop for young dancers to immerse themselves into the processes of creating dance.
