If you know anything about Dance Exchange, you know that we don’t like to make dances in isolation. In fact, it’s just not something we do. When Dance Exchange makes dances, we find ourselves collaborating with scientists, community organizers, naturalists, and teachers. We perform with younger people and older people, with people who call themselves dancers and people who don’t (yet).

And now, this spring, Dance Exchange wants to perform with you!


We’re officially inviting you to participate in Co-Lab, a brand new program here at Dance Exchange. Co-Lab is a community choreography laboratory which provides an opportunity for local artists and community members to collaborate with Dance Exchange artists in creating, rehearsing, and performing an original performance work. This intergenerational, interdisciplinary creative process is open to movers and makers of all backgrounds and experiences.

Learn more about Co-Lab below and contact if you’re interested in joining us in the studio this spring!
