About Us

 

New York Dance Project is a nonprofit professional/preprofessional dance company founded in New York City by Davis Robertson and Nicole Duffy to bridge the gap between training and becoming a professional dancer. Our professionals are emerging artists beginning their careers, and our apprentices pay tuition to train full-time as junior members of the company. All dancers participate in performances and national and international tours, and learn our diverse repertory, including traditional ballets, neoclassical works, modern and contemporary works.

New York Dance project is also committed to honoring and promoting the legacy of Robert Joffrey and Gerald Arpino, through teaching and performing their choreography. In addition, our dancers have the formative experience of working with established choreographers on new work.

Our Summer Intensives are dance laboratories where dancers will train intensively with our experienced faculty and learn our repertory. Dancers that attend the summer intensives will automatically be considered for our year-round company.

The New York Dance Project Company is dedicated to dance performance of a wide-ranging repertory that ranges from ballet and modern classics, to new contemporary works that defy categorization. NY Dance Project promotes new choreography and collaboration between genres, bringing fresh ideas to the concert dance stage.
