Chamber Dance Project, dancers & musicians, is a company of professional artists dedicated to redefining contemporary ballet in partnership with live music in intimate settings heightening the impact on audiences. We are dedicated to sharing our art and exposing it to a diverse audience not otherwise afforded the opportunity. Our work is a celebration of outstanding artists and designers collaborating on works which have a contemporary relevance and resonance. We are devoted to supporting the creation of new choreographic works and musical scores and to their performance with other contemporary works onstage as well as in film. We utilize the intimate and interactive settings of the rehearsal studio, educational classroom and the theater to share our creative process.

Chamber Dance Project breaks creative and conceptual bounds with work of sweeping athleticism, artful sensuality, arresting emotional shifts, and a power that lingers long after the curtain.
Our two repertoire programs feature a live string quartet onstage collaborating with 7 soloist dancers from The Joffrey, Atlanta, Milwaukee and Washington Ballets in works of 4 acclaimed choreographers.
World premiere: Wild Swans by Darrell Grand Moultrie, and Arranged by Diane Coburn Bruning. Two DC premieres: the witty Four Men in Suits in stark relief to the sensuous pas de deux, Journey, plus a return of the searing, poignant male duet, Exit Wounds, the exuberant, Time Has Come, and our popular tango ballet, Sur. Our Family Matinee includes a discussion before and children joining artists to try some dancing onstage after the show.
"There are many reasons to celebrate the Chamber Dance Project ...the arrival of an imaginative and determined new dance force into our midst"
-Sarah Kaufman, The Washington Post
