By making dances that reflect the beliefs and spirit of our culture, DancEthos works towards representing the true purpose of art in reducing the distance between two people. The only constant for DancEthos is change because we are committed to presenting a variety of artistic voices and visions and therefore collaborate with a number of different choreographers and guest artists for each performance. Not only does this make for performances that are full of diversity, but it helps to build a stronger, more connected arts community which is another mission of the company. By creating and performing work that is accessible to the non-dancer audience member, DancEthos hopes to foster dialogue through dance and broaden the DC metropolitan dance audience base. The DancEthos repertory is moving, high-spirited and performed by the full ensemble of 10 dancers with boundless energy and abandonment. Critically acclaimed as “a local treasure” (DC Metro Theater Arts 2013), the DC based Modern dance company DancEthos was founded in 2010 by Tiffany Haughn and is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization.
