Company Danzante Danzante is a professional repertory dance company based in Northern Virginia that presents contemporary dance by seasoned and emerging choreographers.

Company Danzante began as a dance collective called DanzaNorte, based in Mexico from 2008-2011. This collective aimed to collaborate with artists to develop the contemporary dance scene in the northern region of Mexico and envisioned integrating the regional dance scenes into a national network of artists. DanzaNorte believed that contemporary dance and its artists would benefit from collaboration

and communication. DanzaNorte participated in festivals, presented a performance season, taught for companies and summer intensives, created a series of short films called “Stand-Alone”, and held a choreographic residency in Chicago supported by a grant from the National Institute of Arts (INBA).



What is a Danzante? By using the abbreviation for Norte (Nte), DanzaNorte evolved into Danzante, which from Spanish can be interpreted to stand for someone whose life is dance. A Danzante dances for a purpose, expresses emotion and intention through dance, and seeks to explore life through the investigation of movement. 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.
