Check out SPLASH DANCE EVENTS under COMMUNITY! — So,

WHAT’S IN A NAME?

We take our name, DanceCircus, from the ancient Roman word circus which means circle. Our programs reflect the more contemporary meaning of circle, an area of action or influence, or, a group of people sharing a common interest.

If you saw HOT H2O in concert, danced in SPLASH DANCE freshwater flash mob or participated in eco-dance workshops, you experienced the beauty of the natural world, examined urban environmental concerns and enjoyed innovative dance performances.

Or, you saw youth, seniors or differently-abled people blend choreography and dance skills with their environmental interests to create dance programs expressing their concerns, joys and hopes for the world they live in.

Then, you have been part of vibrant and entertaining celebrations involving collaborating artists and performers, diverse people, environmental organizations and civic agencies to bring our community together in a circus of motion and emotion..

I’m asking for your support to continue DanceCircus’ outstanding and innovative eco-dance programs for all ages presented across the region. Please consider a gift today.
