area danscompany (AREA) is the instituional voice for the Buffalo dance community currently in its conceptual stage.
AREA is an activity-making venture to provide programs and services to the dance community from instruction to performance developing resources for the recreational to professional dancer, underserved communities, and entering into strategic partnerships with other organizations.
AREA is a space-making venture providing a dedicated facility to the dance community designed expressly for the unique demands of the dance form. Additionally, the facility will be available for use by the general public able to accommodate the needs of general event needs.
AREA is a place-making venture eager to contribute to the vibrancy of Main Street and downtown's renaissance being a destination for visitors and a good neighbor to its surrounding businesses.
Currently seeking a point of entry, April 2018's launch event presentation provides information regarding AREA's pathway towards operation.
area danscompany will serve not as a performing company, but as a regional dance incubator creating programming and opportunity for the dance community at large as it seeks to curate performances, hosting residencies, conduct dance instruction, and facilitate the self-production of artists within the region.
AREA aspires to find the place where serving the needs of the Buffalo dance and cultural communities intersects with serving the instrinsic and established demands of the art form.
area danscompany is committed to contributing to and enhancing the cultural capital and cultural ecosystem of Buffalo and Western New York serving as an integral thread to the cultural fabric in Buffalo providing robust options for cultural consumers, aficionados, seekers, and learners.
