The Humans of Dance LAB Creative!

About the Artists

Dance LAB is unique in that we are a rotating group of artists. Whether dancers work with us once or on a consistent basis, they are part of the collective's history. Artists participate in projects when they are able and interested, meaning some are involved with the collective for many different pieces while others dance with us just once. Dance LAB artists come from a variety of personal and professional backgrounds.
