REAson d'etre dance productions aims to teach and inspire the public about contact dance improvisation and dance/theatre through the creation and production of classes, workshops, jams, films, performances and festivals that express the human condition. We strive achieve these endevours through the art of contact improvisation. We want o bring Contact improvisation to a diverse group of adults of all ages and training levels. To ensure accessibility of the dance arts to the public we also offer inclusive programming and scholarships. We strive to explore current themes in a manner that enables the public to benefit from the enlivening powers of expression through movement.
