Mendocino Dance Project was created by Kara Starkweather with the desire to create a vibrant dance community on the Mendocino Coast. Under Starkweather’s artistic direction and perseverance, the company continues to grow and expand. It blends various dance forms, creating a unique style that is both dynamic and athletic, on and off the ground. Their thought provoking work addresses what it is like to be human from many different angles. In addition to performing, Mendocino Dance Project teaches technique classes, creative dance, and aerial workshops.
