Ririe-Woodbury (Rī ́-rē - Woŏd ́-bûr-ē) Dance Company furthers contemporary dance as an accessible and valued art form through performance and dance education. We strive to raise the standards, deepen the understanding, and promote personal connections with dance.
The Company pursues this overall vision through performing innovative, original works and commissioning choreographers of exceptional talent; providing dance education for all levels; touring regionally, nationally and internationally; training artists as performers, educators and choreographers; and developing dance audiences.
The Nikolais Dance Theatre
The Nikolais/Louis Foundation for Dance partnered with Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company in 2003 to present works of American treasure and master of multimedia, Alwin Nikolais. His work has influenced some of the most popular dance companies and choreographers around the world. With Alberto del Saz, Co-Director of the Nikolais/Louis Foundation, the Company is committed to keeping the Nikolais legacy alive, while maintaining our dedication to commissioning and producing innovative, moving, and compelling work that challenges our audiences’ perceptions of what contemporary dance can be.
Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company serves as the only company to perform full-evening performances of Alwin Nikolias’ work.
