Founded in 2019 by Victoria L. Awkward VLA DANCE is a quickly growing contemporary dance company that is invested in dance as a conduit for communal care and creating Freedom for people of all identities.
Meet our administrative team, dancers and read our Financial Transparency Project below.
We present interdisciplinary performances, dance classes, educational programming from youth to young adults, and present an annual journal that presents ideas on community and anti-racist work. Learn more about our programming below.
We aim to create Freedom for people of all identities through contemporary dance.
We believe that our vision should exist while upholding our values: bringing together racially diverse artists, respecting body images, holding space for a fluidity of gender identities, providing transparency in communication, upholding ethical company practices, and valuing each company member as an integral part to the whole.
