The artistic mission of CORE is to express ideas and emotions to our audience in a manner that will engage, entertain, educate, and promote the expression of human experiences through movement. Our vision is to be known regionally and nationally as a dance company producing innovative and expressive works.
CORE Contemporary Dance is a professional company comprised of dancers with diverse backgrounds. The goal of CORE is to develop and inspire the passion in each individual dancer, in addition to developing technique. This commitment and passion comes across very clearly to the audience, who will always feel something at a CORE performance: joy, pain, triumph, desperation, or just inspired by new possibilities. In addition to innovative performances, CORE is deeply committed to the youth in our community and has several community outreach programs: Apprentice & Guest performer program Adaptive Dance - weekly free creative movement and dance class for special needs students and their siblings. Workshops & Master Classes - taught at regional high schools throughout the year.
