Mission Statement

Dancing in the Streets (Dancing) strives to illuminate the urban experience with free public performances and site-specific installations that examine the kinetic life and history of natural and architectural public spaces. Its productions explore the intersection of the arts and the city, strengthen community life through active engagement with the arts, diversify audiences, and serve as catalysts for the celebration of urban life.

Description

Since Dancing was founded in 1984, it has commissioned, produced and presented more than 500 performances and installations by over 300 contemporary artists. It has garnered local, national and international praise for its large-scale performances, site-specific productions, and festivals that have revitalized public spaces and helped break the barrier too often existing between art and the general public. Dancing was founded by Elise Bernhardt and has been under the leadership of Aviva Davidson since 1998.
