Our Mission

The dancer's body is simply the luminous manifestation of the soul.

- Isadora Duncan

 

Word Dance Theater is dedicated to being a world-class organization that invites people from all walks of life into our unique Isadora Duncan-inspired philosophy, methodology, and aesthetic of dance. Our approach blends music, theater, poetry, and visual art with holistic dance movements that unite us with the full range of our emotions and restores us to our roots: the breath, energy, strength, beauty, spirit, community, and freedom that is the birthright of all people.  

 

The Company

Word Dance Theater boldly integrates the talents of dancers, playwrights, actors, musicians, multi-media and production artists, creating original and dynamic theatrical productions that test creative boundaries for artists and bringing new theatrical experiences to audiences.  

Education

Word Dance Theater offers weekly Duncan technique classes, as well as master classes, lectures, demonstrations, and workshops for educational institutions. Classes and educational programs provide movers and the dance education community the opportunity to experience the original technique that inspired the modern and contemporary dance movement, while also seeing how this historically significant technique continues to progress in the 21st century.

The Community

Word Dance Theater partners with local charitable organizations to bring targeted dance and movement classes, workshops and performing arts experiences to communities in need of physical, spiritual, emotional and financial support.
