Dance to the People

Mission Statement

Dance to the People is an open and itinerant collective that consists of dancers/movers and other collaborators (videographers, actors, scientists, photographers, architects) who work in non-hierarchical forms of art making.

We collaborate to develop content and structures of improvisation, movement research, training, and performance, by fostering the exchange of resources already present in our community. With each project we further discover innovative ways to work that move us away from a didact

Program Statement

DANCE TO THE PEOPLE was formed in 2014 in NYC by Mexican dancer and choreographer, Maira Duarte, with the goal of accessing unutilized spaces and promoting a sustainable exchange of resources within the dance and performance community, to break down models of competition that are detrimental to the positive effect dance and performance can have in social change.

Each collective member can direct, ask for funding, find spaces, initiatie collaborations, or discover resources to support such project
