"Finding such strong emotional connection along with such deep and spacious movement is a rarity in dance today" -Stephanie Deere, Broadway World
Founded by Artistic Director Igal Perry, Peridance Contemporary Dance Company (PCDC) has been a powerhouse of energetic and evocative dance since its inception in 1984. Mr. Perry, together with Executive Director, Yarden Ronen-van Heerden, has structured the Company to explore and experiment with innovative movement and design, while upholding the elegance and articulation of classical ballet, and with an emphasis on performing repertory by notable choreographers. The Company had recently returned from a successful tour in Italy and Israel, debuting a new and exciting repertory with works by Igal Perry, Ohad Naharin, Dwight Rhoden and Sidra Bell. These works were featured this summer at Jacob's Pillow's Inside/Out Series and Manhattan's Union Square "Summer in the Square" series. PCDC is housed within Peridance Capezio Center's state-of-the-art Center in the Union Square area of New York City, with the beautiful Salvatore Capezio Theater as its resident performance venue. The Company dancers are all classically trained, versatile, physical, and extremely expressive.
Peridance Contemporary Dance Company is excited to continue its three decade-long dedication to creating and performing powerful dance that inspires audiences nationally and internationally.
