Internationally renowned Parsons Dance has captivated audiences for nearly 40 years with its energized, athletic ensemble work. Founded in 1985 by Artistic Director David Parsons and Tony Award-winning lighting designer Howell Binkley, the company has toured more than 445 cities, 30 countries, and 5 continents and has performed in notable venues worldwide.

The company performs works selected from the vast and varied repertory of more than 75 works created by “one of the great movers of modern dance” (The New York Times) David Parsons. In addition, established choreographers like Trey McIntyre and Monica Bill Barnes re-stage works from the American canon on its dancers. Through its newly launched GenerationNOW Fellowship, the company offers commissions to young American choreographers whom Parsons mentors through the creative process.
