REAson d'etre dance productions strives to provide artistic expression through movement, inclusive of age, ability, level background. We stage and program works based on Contact Improvisation so we can utilize the inclusiveness that can be a part of this dance form. Our vision is for both professional dancers and everyday people to be inspired and invigorated by Contact Improvisation.

We are committed to examining the art form of contact improvisation and acknowledging its history of inequity, ablism, and racism.

We believe that increasing accessibility breaks down barriers to dance, creating a stunning humanity that is the heart of the artistic aesthetic we reach for.

A musician improvises, sweeping dancers into explorations of different themes. Teaming Contact Dance with exceptional live music deepens the form. People alternate between dancing and watching the performance. The jams build community. It's about relationships, with the quality of communication being the aesthetic measure. Classes in functional movement help Contact Dancers move with ease and prevent injury. We see healthy m
