Salons are a wonderful opportunity to experience live performances by Word Dance Theater's dancers, musicians, poets, playwrights, and actors in charming and informal settings. Designed for audiences of 100 people or less, Word Dance Theater Salons include a performance along with a post-performance question-and-answer session. This format gives audience members an opportunity to ask questions and visit with the artists in a more intimate environment. Salons can be performed in venues such as museums, embassies and even private homes. Each salon is customized and curated for the space in which it is presented.
Word Dance Theater is proud to have performed many salons at many beautiful locations and private homes around the Washington, DC region. Past salon venues include:
Body of Santa Fe (Santa Fe, NM)
Hotel des Artistes (New York, NY)
The Sophia Institute (Charleston, SC)
Villa Elia (Treasure Beach, Jamaica)

“At the German Historical Institute’s opening of “Visions of Beauty,” an exhibition of photographs by Arnold Genthe, Word Dance contributed a selection of beautiful Duncan dances. Isadora Duncan and her dancers had been a favorite subject of Genthe’s camera, and seeing these dances so gracefully performed live by Cynthia Word and Ingrid Zimmer in front of the backdrop of the photographs was a real treat for the audience, adding a perfect touch to the evening.”
– Jessica Csoma, German Historical Institute
