Under the co-artistic direction of Jessie Jeanne Stinnett and award winning, Dutch-Israeli, choreographer Itzik Galili, Boston Dance Theater (BDT) is a contemporary dance repertory company with international ties at the leadership level. With a commitment to presenting works of socio-political relevance that challenge the edges of current world issues, BDT matches the talents of Boston-based dancers with those of acclaimed global choreographers in a tour de force of performative dynamism, community connection, and trans-national ambassadorship.
BDT serves as an incubator for creative partnerships, locally, nationally and abroad. We recognize the richness already present in the Boston dance community and exist to propel the potential forward through innovative performance, educational programming, and outreach initiatives. As we think big, the heart of our mission remains on the local level. The international choreographers we’ve commissioned will be presenting U.S. premieres – right here in Boston. In commissioning them, BDT has created, and will continue to produce, jobs for Boston-based artists.
