Calamity Co Dance

Calamity Co Dance has two main focuses: choreography and show production. 

When we choreograph and perform, our pieces tend to be light-hearted, involve their fair share of silly faces, and are built with live music, dialogue, and improv. Some of our favorite topics for dances are friendship and potatoes.

The other thing we do is organize performances. They're dance-heavy, but always include many other art forms, especially live music, comedy, and theater. We try to make an atmosphere that encourages people to enjoy art in whatever way they please to do so, rather than worrying about 'getting' it, as we know many non-dancers do at dance shows. The ticket-prices are low and there are always snacks.

We believe that everybody has something important to share artistically, and that art can be everywhere. And that art doesn't necessarily have to be 'serious' to be 'good.'
