About the Group:
Beacon Dance is a professional, performance-focused organization. Our mission is to enrich the lives of those who intersect with our work, by presenting classes, workshops and performances to the general public. We design our projects to be interactive experiences with our audiences, to reflect the realities of our time, to occur in unusual spaces and with passionate attention. Beacon Dance seeks to provide our programming as public art—free of charge and within the public realm. As an organization, Beacon Dance is committed to the ideals of the public art movement: Access, public service, social justice and responsibility.
