Amanda Selwyn Dance Theatre engages audiences in original and dynamic dance theatre that raises questions, challenges social norms and values, and magnifies humanity through dance. Productions pivot around core themes and through an interplay between athletic and pedestrian motion, activate emotional expression, character, and narrative in a rich and abstract collage. Amanda Selwyn Dance Theatre presents dance in an immediate, mature, and inclusive way that engages our audiences from start to finish and beckons a response of thought, feeling, and soul.
