Dancers’ Theatre Company . . . a moving experience
is a non profit 501(c)(3) children’s and
young adult creative process performing company of gifted and talented
children from 6 – 18 years of age. These children have had a minimum
of three years in modern dance instruction and relentlessly create art
in all forms, particularly Modern Dance.
The Dancers’ Theatre Company presents children’s works and
the emerging artistic works of its’ faculty and staff in legitimate
proscenium theatre. . These young artists not only learn the skills and
art of modern dance, choreography and improvisation but the language of
emotional and social
literacy. Many children create their choreographies from the painting
and poetry they design and form. Many children create the music for their
expression. Dance is the perfect format for the artistically talented.
You don’t have to be a dancer to dance and create dance. (Refer
to Bill T. Jones). Many of these children choreograph life’s biographies.
