Best of Silicon Valley 2010: Most Inspired Modern Dance Company —The Metro

Description

Founded in 1981, the critically-acclaimed Margaret Wingrove Dance Company remains San Jose’s longest-standing modern dance company. Blending both modern and ballet techniques with high energy and physicality, the company’s style is fluid enough to allow for bold experimentation in a wide range of repetoire of over 80 choreographic works.

The company is dedicated to the innovation and presentation of emotionally compelling and dynamically driven dance. It performs not only works of its founder and artistic director, Margaret Wingrove, but also showcases the works of emerging choreographers and noted guest artists. This mission to present young, promising dancers and choreographers has been very much a company mainstay since its founding.
