Core Performance Company

About the Artist

Core Performance Company, in its 38th year as a professional contemporary dance company, has extensive experience with students, elders and populations-in-isolation.  Under Artistic Director Sue Schroeder, Core Dance has developed programs that accommodate varying numbers of participants and all levels of movement experience, ages, abilities and needs.  Ask about Curriculum tie-ins, Assessments and Arts Integration Trainings.  We require schools to partner for five-day engagements. Contact Core Dance to help us design your ideal residency.

Life Interrupted: (Grades 9-12) See Assembly Performance.  Enthusiastic student discussions have ranged from movement and dance to post-war emigration, xenophobia and the politics of “the other”. A vivid experience.

Heart of the Matter: (Grades 3-4) See Assembly Performance. HOM is interactive through verbal, movement and writing exercises and addresses not only the body image but the resulting stress, peer pressure and bullying that can accompany eating disorders.
