V.I.D.A.M.

Dance.  Listen.  Improvise.

Each VIDAM event features at least one veteran improvisational musician to collaborate with dancers - filling the space with inspiration for movement, composition, and focus.


Musician and dancers collaborate in filling the space with inspiration for movement, expression, surprise and delight.


Our aim is to create an open space where ALL ARE WELCOME to be a part of the evening - on any level that feels comfortable.
