Our Story

Company Danzante, is a contemporary repertory dance company based in Arlington, VA. Since beginning artistic activities in 2013, the company has presented work at the Kennedy Center Millennium Stage, Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival Inside/Out Series, Dance Gallery Festival NYC, Atlas INTERSECTIONS Festival DC, Yes Invitational Festival Richmond, Velocity DC Dance Festival, Dance Bethesda, Koresh Artist Showcase, and the Esencia Festival in Chicago. In 2015 the company directors Katherine Horrigan and Arturo Garcia were recipients of the Strauss Artist Grant awarded by the Arts Council of Fairfax County. In 2014, Arturo was the recipient of Kennedy Center’s Local Dance Commissioning Project. Company Danzante is currently supported by Arlington Commission for the Arts.

Company Danzante’s goal is to promote excellence in contemporary dance with captivating dance productions and conceptual dance creations through an emphasis in the investigative creative process while supporting and nurturing the professional careers of passionate dance artists. Company Danzante serves the local community through engaging dance presentations, education programs, and outreach activities. ​ What is a Danzante? A Danzante dances for a purpose, expresses emotion and intention through dance, and seeks to explore life through the investigation of movement.

By using the abbreviation for Norte (Nte), Colectivo DanzaNorte evolved into Danzante, which from Spanish can be interpreted to stand for someone whose life is dance.

Company Danzante seeks to build upon its foundation and values established by the former artistic collective and apply the spirit and meaning of Danzante in all the work that it does.
