Bringing audiences an electric and innovative brand of contemporary dance.
Kristin Damrow & Company's mission is to engage community through dance. Each year, Kristin Damrow & Company produces a showcase performance season by bringing together a diverse group of local dancers, artists, musicians, and other creative minds. This collaborative spirit underlies every story we choreograph and perform. KDC’s education programs create a place for people to grow stronger, express their creativity, and become part of a close community.

In class I want to explore the physical composition of the body and how it translates to contemporary movement. How can our bones help move us through space? How can we turn off the muscles we don’t need to use the weight of the body to build momentum? I want to explore paring precision with abandonment. I want to discover how to use the body as a tool to move, to dig deeper into the rigor of contemporary technique.
