Embody Dance Project

em(body) dance project is a small contemporary dance group based out of the South Bay. They were founded in 2019 and since then have performed around the bay area from Mill Valley to Mountain View. Their works focus on telling human stories and elevating voices that are not often heard from in concert dance. They especially prioritize the voices of women and queer people. Their works are emotionally driven and relate to their audiences on a human level. The dancers are highly skilled professionals from around the bay area who perform with passion and intention. They have created to date three full evening performances, 2 full length digital shows and 7 separate live performances. These venues have included the San Francisco Movement Arts Festival, SafeHouse Arts as an artist in resident, Zohar Dance Company, as well as Little Boxes Theater. They also collaborate with JonesPro Photo and Film in creating high quality, professionally filmed and edited dance films for their digital performances. They have one such performance coming up later on this fall. See their website or Patreon for more information.
