Dance Generators

Formed in 1997 by Amie Dowling, the Dance Generators is a performance company whose dancers' age span six decades. Committed to creating work that is vital and challenging, the pieces the company performs press the boundaries of relationship, individual physicality and audience expectations.
"The best work I've seen that incorporates older people because it is done without cliche or false reverence for aging. The work is created with clarity of purpose...movement after movement betrays cultural myths about aging" The News and Observer, Durham N.C.
The Dance Generators offer school residencies that include classes and interactive performances.
