METHOD Contemporary Dance is an award-winning, cutting-edge Los Angeles dance company. We are busily working on our winter show at the Walt Disney Concert Hall's REDCAT theater as part of The A.W.A.R.D. Show!, as well as creating a new evening length work to premiere in 2011 and tour in the United States and Canada. Please help us keep dance in Los Angeles alive!!

Our goal as a company is to create a harmonious community of previously disparate artists as a medium for growth, and for the creation of our dances as the purest and highest expression of ourselves. Our intention is to share this spirit, as well as our dances, with the outside world. METHOD fashions full-bodied movement poems that speak on a visceral level to the audience. The stories being told are the ones occurring between the dancers and the audience at the moment of performance. In this way, METHOD creates a fully present human dialogue in which all people can engage

Dancer and choreographer's are the least paid artists in the United States. Their livelihood depends on the generosity of partons who love dance. Your donation to METHOD pays dancer's fees, allows us to rent rehearsal space, purchase costumes, insure ourselves, produce our shows, cover touring costs and support, bring amazing live art to as many audiences as possible, and of course, buy kneepads! Donations are appreciated beyond power of speech and are fully tax deductible as well.

If you would like to become involved in some other way or if you would like more information, please contact METHOD.
