Welcome to Blackbird Dances

At the intersection of art and process


Blackbird Dances is a multifaceted endeavor. It is at once a project-based dance company based in New York City as well as a space that advocates and offers movement-based healing approaches and content, with the overarching mission of countering limiting perspectives about the body, its capacity, potential and roles. 

Blackbird Dance Company, which is one arm of this endeavor, is a long-term project. Calling on expert teachers and talented choreographers, it is meant to establish solid technical artistic foundations in its artists through long-term training, repertory building and performance opportunities. The company seeks to share the joy and the benefits of Flamenco and Spanish dances and to invest in people, both its artists and audiences, increasing access to this art, and its health-promoting qualities.
