About RebollarDance

13265975_1009829279052681_8693630578599411470_nIn 2003, Erica Rebollar created a modern dance collaborative where multi-genre artists can make innovative work. RebollarDance examines dichotomies and fragmentations of physical behavior that explore boundaries of performance, using bodies, light, and sound as conceptual canvasses to evoke authentic, highly charged experiences for both dancers and audience. Rebollar Dance’s mission is to create and present cutting edge choreography that impact large and diverse audiences, examining movement as a facet of modern life and a laboratory for analyzing themes. Exploring choreography as innovation, RebollarDance promotes an artistic process of challenge and risk-taking.
