Beacon Dance Touring & Residency Program

Beacon Dance is a professional performance organization presenting classes, workshops and performances to the general public. Our work is a series of projects linked to the basic elements of dance: The body, time, space and energy. We design our projects to be interactive experiences with our audiences, to reflect the realities of our time, to occur in unusual spaces and with passionate attention. The programs of Beacon Dance are offered throughout the year. We are based in Decatur, GA, and tour extensively throughout the Southeast.
