“We are proud to celebrate another milestone in a year of landmark moments. In the last year ODC/Dance has traveled to Southeast Asia as an ambassador of the U.S. State Department in its inaugural DanceMotion USA Tour. We premiered a new work at the unveiling of our beautiful new state-of-the-art community theater—so many years in the making—to packed audiences and hugely enthusiastic reviews. And now we celebrate our 40th anniversary as one of the oldest and most comprehensive contemporary dance institutions in the country. As an organization we are equal parts expansive and reflective, and both of these feelings have found expression in the programming for our 40th Anniversary season.” - Brenda Way
