A contemporary dance company, Sarah Bush Dance Project works at making the art of dance accessible by performing in locations as diverse as the company’s style–from parks, nightclubs and churches to traditional theater environments. A constant through SBDP’s work is the expression, emotion, and humanity in the dancers’ performance quality. The company explores issues of identity, gender, and sexuality within the broader themes of love, relationships, loss, power and empowerment.

Lifting each other up. Working together. Weightless. Empowered. Strong. Full and multidimensional.
