About Danspace Project

For over 35 years, Danspace Project has supported a vital community of contemporary dance artists in an environment unlike any other in the United States. Located in the historic St. Mark's Church in-the-Bowery, Danspace shares its facility with the Church, The Poetry Project, and The Incubator Arts Project. Danspace Project's Commissioning Initiative has commissioned over 400 new works since its inception in 1994.

In 2009-2010, Danspace Project launched the Choreographic Center Without Walls (CW2), a new framework to examine and re-invigorate dance presenting practices. The linchpin of CW2 is the PLATFORMS series, which invites guest artist-curators to curate a series of performances; create catalogues and facilitate activities that contextualize the performances; and to provide residency, technical, and dramaturgical support for the presented artists.

Mission Statement

Danspace Project presents new work in dance, supports a diverse range of choreographers in developing their work, encourages experimentation, and connects artists to audiences.
