Repertory Dance Theatre relishes the diversity of thought and action. Women’s History Month is an opportunity for this company and all our patrons to reflect on many of the amazing and influential women in the history of dance. From pioneers and revolutionaries to modern paradigms, women have molded dance into what we enjoy today.

Modern Dance began as a social revolution. It began as a means of “self-expression.” It was a rejection of the academic and embraced “natural movement.” Isadora Duncan, Ruth St. Denis, Loie Fuller were three famous “movement reformers” who began as soloists (unusual for the day). Their dance was an affirmation of women. They used music as a motivation for movement.

What People are Saying

The diversity of the dancers really spoke to my students! It was great to see boys and girls dancing, and different races. The high level of engagement was so refreshing and got students excited about thecontent.
This activity was valuable because it helped students make connections between dance, rhythm, healthy lifestyles, and expression. The students were impressed by the talent of the dancers and it was motivating to them.
Opportunities for art and expression are so limited at school but so essential and valuable for all students, especially those who struggle to learn through traditional methods. My Kindergarteners have been dancing since you left!
This was so engaging. I looked around the auditorium and every student was watching. Not one person was talking or distracted
This activity is valuable to teachers and students because it gives them a creative outlet. We need movement in the classroom to engage, energize and deepen student learning.
I got great ideas on how to incorporate movement into math and science lessons.
I loved how you made movement and exercise relatable to the students. The dancers were full of energy and there was very little down time so students stayed engaged.
Our children were captivated by the performance. They listened to you and they were learning without knowing. They usually giggle when bodies are shown and talked about. But the way you presented it was so tastefully done, they now do poses and movement around the room and outside. You brokesome barriers and they took that permission and literally ran with it!
