Nomadic Dance Collective began when 3 movement artists with varying expertise (contact improvisation, contemporary dance, and butoh) came together to share movement artistry not only among each other but among intensive retreat participants. Together, we explored the margins between the disciplines and put it all together in the form of varying jams and performances.

The project has since grown to incorporate additional movement guides for month-long retreats. Our collective now has added a member specializing in theatre and another specializing in voice work. See the three month-long retreats happening for the months of March, April, and May below.
