Northwest Dance Project has established itself as a bold and innovative contemporary dance company performing all-original repertoire from an eclectic roster of accomplished choreographers as well as the most promising new talents in the field of dance. The company is classically trained, versatile, incredibly talented and a fearless collection of dynamic dancers.
Founded in 2004 by acclaimed dancer, mentor and choreographer Sarah Slipper, NW Dance Project is dedicated to the creation and performance of innovative, contemporary new dance works from established and emerging dance makers created in an open and artistically stimulating environment.
NW Dance Project has fostered the creation and premiere of over 175 original contemporary dance works to date. Their dedication to providing dancers and dance makers the resources and creative room needed to realize new, inspired dance works led Dance International Magazine to proclaim that they are “changing the way dance is created” and the NW Dance Project has become “a laboratory, factory and repository for risk-taking new works from the next generation of choreographers from Europe and North America.”
