DANCECleveland’s mission is bringing the passion and verve of modern and contemporary dance to the hearts and minds of northeast Ohioans.
DANCECleveland’s vision is to be a culture-maker in Northeast Ohio, and the center for modern and contemporary dance in our region. DANCECleveland cultivates a dynamic level of activity that embraces, educates, inspires and supports dance enthusiasts and artists alike. The centerpiece of this endeavor is DANCECleveland’s annual concert series featuring nationally and internationally recognized dance companies. DANCECleveland enhances the concert experience with a robust array of social and educational events that break artistic boundaries and provide community access to artists.
DANCECleveland’s core values are to:
DANCECleveland is committed to doing its part to impact change towards diversity, equity, and inclusion in the landscape of modern dance and beyond. We will present our communities with programming that is accessible, promotes unity and acceptance. As we reflect inward at our organization, we will look for ways to fight the roots of injustice from the inside out. We will cultivate organizational standards emphasizing the importance of diverse partnerships that respect race, identity, ethnicity, age, and education. As a proud member of the Northeast Ohio arts community and in a place of humility, we are here to listen, learn, challenge, and change together.
DANCECleveland humbly acknowledges that the land on which we reside and the place we call Cuyahoga County is territory that was claimed by the United States government through force, displacement and treaties negotiated in bad faith. We acknowledge that this land is the traditional homeland of the Erie, Lenape (Delaware), Shawnee, Wyandot Miami, Ottawa, Potawatomi, and other Great Lakes tribes (Chippewa, Kickapoo, Wea, Piankishaw, and Kaskaskia) and remains the home to the thousands of Native Americans representing over 100 tribes.
Support DANCECleveland today and keep modern and contemporary dance thriving in northeast Ohio.
