We work to create choreography that is original and passionate; each piece as unique as the artists who interpret it.

DTD believes in always taking care of their talent and compensating them. Dancers should not have to dance for free just because they enjoy it. We are a small company but want to fight some of the injustices that are part of our daily lives.
