Our Mission

Mendocino Dance Project is a dynamic and athletic dance company that is making dances inside theaters and in outside spaces, on and off the ground. It is committed to helping art thrive in small communities, bringing inspired and original work to its audiences. 

The company's thought provoking work addresses what it is like to be human from many different angles. The five dancers are dedicated mothers, working as professional artists, living in a beautiful, rural environment.

With isolation comes something unique; the dancers challenge each other, relying on personal drive and group creativity to forge ahead, leading to a rare and authentic style.  Our deep appreciation for beautiful landscapes and rural living guides our art making. 

In addition to performing and creating original shows, Mendocino Dance Project teaches creative movement in schools, offers workshops and classes, and collaborates with other arts organizations. Contact the company to book a performance or workshop in your area.
