Welcome to All the Modern Dances, home of the ACW Dances company! ACW Dances is a sponsored project by Fractured Atlas, a 501(c)(3) based in New York (since 5/10/13). To learn more, visit the Support page.
AUDITION: we are in need of 2-3 adjunct company dancers for our spring 2015 concert. Auditions will be held on OCTOBER 25, 2014, from 11-1 PM at 3700 S. Four Mile Run Drive, Arlingon, VA. We are looking for dancers with strong modern, improvisation, and weight-sharing backgrounds. Friday evening and Saturday morning rehearsals. Contact Abigail at acwdancesco (at) gmail.com for more information.
We are happy to be a current Arlington Arts supported organization. We will be presented in a lovely black box theater twice this year, once in December and once in April, as part of a space and services grant through Arlington County. Tickets on sale for December!
We were honored by DC Theater Scene with a 5-star rating for our show, which ranked us BEST OF FRINGE!
My mission as an artist is to engage with the community around me through performance and collaborative projects. ACW Dances operates on the premise that art needs to be accessible regardless of economic status and that artists should be paid for their time, hard work, and talent. It is my goal to offer at least two free performances yearly, along with one ticketed performance. After most performances, audiences are invited to stay for a moderated Q&A discussion based on Liz Lerman’s critical response process. In this way, ACW Dances is able to connect to the community directly, which furthers communication and understanding, giving the work deeper meaning and context.
ACW Dances’ ongoing projects are detailed under the “current projects” heading as information becomes available. You can find out more about my personal philosophy and dance aesthetic on the “about me” page, as well as the story behind the inception of All the Modern Dances.
Thank you for taking the time to visit this site and engage with my work. I welcome communication, am open to teaching, choreography, and performance gigs across America and abroad, and collaborations of all kinds.
