Last year One Dance performed for over 2,300 people, most of which took place in community events and street festivals, along with the Shakopee Women’s Prison. We also put on one all-length performance called Thrown Away at the Fallout Arts Initiative, which 175 people attended. After the show, many audience members expressed a connection to the work and a desire for future performances and collaboration. We are not creating work that only dancers understand, we are creating work that speaks to people’s hearts, inspires change, and builds community.We intentionally build relationships because we know we are stronger together and that our work is enriched when it includes art of all mediums.
Vision: Dance is experienced in deep relationship with artists of all mediums, beyond the stage, beyond the gallery, inviting conversation and co-creation in community.
Mission: One Dance Company creates movement that moves: head, heart, action.
Purpose: One Dance Company works to build community where the sacred humanity of each person is affirmed by:
*Offering our work to the Woman’s prison, festivals, community events and celebrations
*Engaging the five senses
*Collaborating with other local artists and business owners
