AN OASIS FOR DANCE

A place to retreat, revitalize, and restore the soul.

We foster a holistic approach to the creative process that results in authentically organic dance.

We are a non-profit, professional summer ballet company of extraordinary creatives committed to  producing outstanding works of art.

Founder & Artistic Director

Dansereye

A new kind of dance company

Translated from the Flemish, Dansereye simply means dance stuff, and originated from books of popular dance tunes called Dansereye, published in 1551 to accompany ordinary folk dances. Dansereye has also been defined as “particles of dance with strong interactions.”

A community of constructive disruptors

We honor the traditions and language of classical dance, while placing ourselves outside of the ballet establishment. We foster a holistic approach to the creative process that results in authentically organic dance.

The Difference Is In The Details

We are dedicated to producing unforgettably theatrical world premieres along with dynamic restagings of our signature ballets. 

Together, we deconstruct patterns and practices that separate us from each other. We move towards community and a shared common purpose. Dance allows us to suspend our disbelief about what is humanly possible. Come join us!
