The Dance COLEctive
The Dance COLEctive (TDC) continuously challenges assumptions about dance –- who dances, what they dance, where, how and when dance takes place, and why dance happens. TDC’s current work examines stereotypes of beauty, creating an atmosphere of power, strength, vulnerability and intimacy that provides the opportunity to question what is insisted on in the everyday. TDC dancers embrace the energy they pass from one another, exhibiting the strength of an athlete, the grace of an artist and the finesse of a woman. Through imagery, TDC challenges popular culture revealing multiple perceptions and truths, thus opening the door to self-acceptance in realism.
