ABOUT THE COMPANY:
CONTINUUM Contemporary/Ballet is a New York City based dance company comprised of classically-trained dancers with contemporary artistic voices. We aim to create work that plays in the concert dance spectrum while celebrating a spirit of dancemaking that is inspiring, collaborative, and progressive.
The company was born out of many inspired conversations with numerous New York City based dancers looking for a company with new values and a creative spirit. They were looking for a home for their dancing that celebrated versatility, knowledge, and artistry.
ABOUT THE NAME:
CONTINUUM signifies our attitude towards the classification of movement; we see every style, concept, and genre in the concert dance realm as equal and relative devices for our creativity, expressivity, and artistry.
CONTEMPORARY: an umbrella dance term referring to modern day movement systems, improvisation methods, and new cultural/aesthetic shifts.
BALLET: the classical western dance form that is the historical technical foundation of concert dance.
/ (the slash) is a demonstration of our respect for both ideas and illustrates two opposing points of the spectrum.
