OUR MISSION

Our mission at Dancers' Workshop is to enrich lives by offering excellence and diversity in dance experiences through education, performance, and outreach for students and audiences of all ages.

ABOUT US

Dancers’ Workshop is a nationally-recognized center for movement and dance education, performance and outreach. We are a dance school, presenter and commissioner of new work. As a non-profit, we bring immersive dance experiences to students and audiences both locally and throughout western Wyoming. Our weekly class offerings enrich the lives of students ages 18 months to 18 years. Over 600 students a year expand their movement potential in our studios, including those in our Open Program focused on adult offerings. Our students benefit from large-scale performance opportunities in addition to their regular classes. Additionally, Dancers' Workshop brings vital dance opportunities to over 20,000 people throughout the state through regional outreach and programming. Each part of our organization - the school, statewide outreach program, professional resident company (Contemporary Dance Wyoming) and annual presenting series - directly impacts and supports the others.

Our Presenting Series brings world-renowned dance companies and influential performance artists to our rural community, such as New York City Ballet Moves, Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company, Savion Glover, Ann Carlson, BJM Danse Montreal, David Dorfman Dance, Alonzo King LINES Ballet and more. Dancers’ Workshop offers unique opportunities for students and audiences to engage directly with visiting artists and artists-in-residence through open rehearsals, master classes, workshops and stage performances, providing as many pathways of access to dance as possible. Dancers’ Workshop’s own professional company in residence, Contemporary Dance Wyoming, increases access to dance year-round as members of the teaching staff at the School.Dancers' Workshop has offered excellence in the art of dance to the State of Wyoming through education and performance since 1971. 

OUR STORY

For over 40 years, Dancers’ Workshop has been sharing the art form of dance through education, performance and outreach. In our grassroots beginnings, classes were held in a small log cabin. The basement of the Pink Garter Theater provided a quirky (and possibly haunted) backdrop to an exciting period of growth for Dancers’ Workshop from 1985 to 2004. We’ve always dreamed bigger than the four walls surrounding us and in 1998, Babs Case became Dancers’ Workshop’s Artistic Director, founding Contemporary Dance Wyoming and helping propel Dancers’ Workshop forward.  2005 marked our move into the (then) brand new education pavilion of The Center, and we have since provided our students and visiting artists with a spacious and state-of-the art space for dance.

While the School at Dancers’ Workshop remains central to our organization, what we do here at Dancers’ Workshop continues to evolve. Since 2013, Dancers’ Workshop is now the commissioner of new dance work from internationally known companies, such as Gallim Dance and Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company. We are proud to present a myriad of exceptional programming that supports dance and the arts in our community and beyond.

Rich in artistic vision and cultural history, Dancers' Workshop invites you to explore the art of dance!
