Performa/Dance is a project-based company founded in 2014 by award winning choreographer Jennifer Hart in collaboration with Edward Carr, a company dancer with Ballet Austin. Our mission is to nurture and support new and creative voices in contemporary dance.

Based in Austin, Texas, Performa/Dance enriches the local arts community by engaging audiences and exposing them to the connective, transformative, and transcendent power of dance. We create dialogues with artists across geographies and media, inviting them to take risks and cultivate their art, with the aim of fostering cross-cultural understanding and deepening artistic excellence. Performa/Dance serves art, artists, and community, giving a voice to underrepresented artists, including women and minorities.


Performa/Dance is supported in part by the Cultural Arts Division of the City of Austin Economic Development Department.
