dawsondancesf breaks down the barriers placed on classical ballet and brings to light the strength and beauty that artists possess within themselves, allowing them to explore their voices through choreography and vision.  Through this process, artists transform themselves, audiences, and the world of dance that surrounds them.  Artistic Director Gregory Dawson formed dawsondancesf in 2007 as an outlet for his choreographic goals and vision and has choreographed a piece specifically for the Osborn/Woods Hall.

“Having created a good amount of  my larger works in unconventional spaces, I find myself attracted to the challenge.  So much so that I find myself slightly uncomfortable with the conventional proscenium.  Indeed what attracts me to those spaces is the history that lies within.  The richness of the architect, the sweat that was behind the construction of the edifice, and most definitely how lives are effected by it existence.  Having visited the Miners Foundry, I was inspired to create a composition that is intimate and inclusive, and having the structure be the gateway into the world that we will create.”  ~ Gregory Dawson
