Making Dances | Building Community
As a professional dance company, we inspire creativity, resilience and connection with performances, classes and community engagement. We love to perform and share the creative work of local and nationally recognized dance artists. We believe dance is for everyone and invite all to find the joy in moving. Dance with us!
This world requires dancers’ skills: creativity, collaboration, and resilience. With these skills, young students blossom into leaders. Adult students become more flexible in mind and body. Professional performances are wildly original — in venues from theaters to parking lots, computer screens to abandoned warehouses. Collaborating with artists, businesses and schools across the region, we build community!

Dance improves mental health! Even 15 minutes reduces stress, anxiety and causes the brain to release “feel-good” hormones; endorphins, serotonin and dopamine. WOW!
“We are not supposed to separate art from life. Ormao’s programs impact everyone’s lives.” — Michelle White, Ormao parent
