Founded by Sue Schroeder, CORE Performance Company creates and performs innovative contemporary dance.  Delving deeply into the arts and the many cultures of the world, CORE unearths and offers unique and compelling dance experiences. Guided by a strong sense of community responsibility, CORE uses dance to educate, to question, to connect, to heal, and to inspire.

Current Projects:
CORE has been acclaimed for its performances and residencies in the United States and internationally, and recently celebrated its 30th anniversary. “An evening full of unexpected pleasures and beautiful mysteries” is how Atlanta’s Creative Loafing remarked on Schroeder’s 2010 Corazón Abriendo (Heart Opening), adding “CORE is a company whose dancers work together with a remarkable ease and with clearly-linked intention.”  CORE creates original work that evolves through experimentation, improvisation, and collaboration with artists from different mediums.  Performing Schroeder’s work as well as that of guest choreographers, CORE maintains a strong profile as a contemporary dance company with a diverse body of multi-layered work.
