We envision Core Dance as a stimulus for the continued evolution of Atlanta and Houston as dynamic centers for dance, with the knowledge that dance as art-making is an essential element of the fabric of our human experience, connecting us to each other.
Core Dance values purposeful artistic risk taking, invention, community participation, led collaboration, knowledge sharing and enquiry carried out with integrity, compassion and an attention to balance between human resources, financial resources and activity level to amplify the quality of our work and the health of our organization.
Core Dance, a contemporary dance organization, creates, performs, and produces compelling original dance that ignites the creative spirit and actively encourages participation and conversation by and with the community. Creating a context for dance that is relevant in both our home cities and around the globe, Core Dance uses dance to illuminate, educate and question. In essence, Core Dance is an artistic incubator and convener.
