About Word Dance Theater

Strength.  Beauty.  Freedom.


Born out of the world of modern dance, Word Dance Theater is a cross-disciplinary performing arts company dedicated to continuing the legacy of Isadora Duncan's technique and revolutionary spirit.  By integrating the talents of dancers, playwrights, actors, musicians and media artists, Word Dance Theater creates original and dynamic theatrical productions that honor Duncan's work, test creative boundaries for artists and bring new theatrical experiences to audiences.  Word Dance Theater also provides community engagement through salon performances and educational programs for movers of all ages and stages of life.

Word Dance Theater was founded in 2001 and a 501(C)3 nonprofit organization.
