Dante Brown|Warehouse Dance

Dante Brown began his dance training at Wesleyan University, which led him to The Ohio State University to receive his MFA in Choreography. As a performer, Dante has worked with artists such as Esther Baker-Tarpaga, Christal Brown, David Dorfman, Kendra Portier, Nicole Stanton, Noa Zuk and at the Dance Exchange. 

Brown has had the opportunity to teach a range of classes at Broadway Dance Center, Dancewave, East Village Dance Project, and Gibney Dance Center (all in NYC), and The Ohio State University. He has held collegiate positions as an Adjunct Professor at CUNY Westchester Community College, Lecturer in Dance at Bates College, and a Visiting Assistant Professor at Wesleyan University. Most recently, Brown was awarded the Schwartz Center for Performing Artists Fellowship at Emory University. He is currently a Visiting Assistant Professor at Amherst College. 

The artists of Dante Brown|Warehouse Dance are warm-hearted, versatile movers with rigorous training and lush, full-bodied physicality. These individuals come from vastly different experiences. The work we create together is designed to encourage questions from our artists and audiences alike. Questions that relate not only to the work but to how we view ourselves day-to-day. Our collaborative is united by a collective interest in highly physical movement, an intellectual commitment to exploring social justice and the absurdity of our culture. Since its founding in 2010, Warehouse Dance has shown work at Bates Dance Festival (ME), Boston Contemporary Dance Festival and Dance Complaexl (MA), Columbus Dance Theater and Wexner Center for the Arts (OH), Dance Complex (Boston), Dance Gallery Festival (NY & TX), Dixon Place, GAP Green Building, LaMaMa Moves Festival, Movement Research at Judson Church, Triskelion Arts and The Wild Project (all NYC), Sam Houston State University (TX), and YourMove Dance Festival (NJ), among others.
