DANCECleveland proudly announces our 2024-2025 Dance Performance Series, celebrating 68 years of modern and contemporary dance! 

The series includes six exciting performances that will ignite your senses and open your mind through live dance performances that inspire. With modern dance pioneers alongside new choreographic voices, the season includes both Northeast Ohio audience favorites and fresh new companies making their Ohio debuts that promise to expand your perceptions of what contemporary dance can be.

The season begins with Community Dance Day and the return of ODC/Dance at Playhouse Square on July 27th! We hope you will join us for free movement classes for all ages and abilities and a variety of styles. Then the Mainstage season continues at Playhouse Square in a variety of theatres this year including Hélène Simoneau Danse in the Mimi Ohio Theatre, and the iconic Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater & Twyla Tharp Dance in the KeyBank State Theatre! For those looking to “see it all” select the Connoisseur series to experience a smaller more intimate theatre experience of Lloyd Knight’s The Drama in the Westfield Insurance Studio Theatre in Ideastream, and Raphael Xavier’s Skiff at Cuyahoga Community College.
