It incorporates movement explorations and structured dance improvisations, fostering clarity and ease in dance decision-making scenarios. Each 2-hour session concludes with an exploration of DanceAction’s repertory through accessible phrase work, providing participants with a comprehensive and enriching dance experience.

DanceAction is a contemporary dance company based in New York, led by Argentinian choreographer Carmen Caceres. With a team of culturally diverse artists, we create dance works that reflect social realities that concern people, relationships, and social justice.
