Join us June 23 / 24  for our latest production


We are proud to announce our next production MIDSUMMER OFFERINGS: Three Dances, June 23 and 24 at the AustinVentures StudioTheater. Watch to meet the three diverse choreographers creating all-new work for this evening of dance, and support this project through our Kickstarter campaign.

Founded in 2014, Performa/Dance is a project-based company created 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 the winner of two 2014-2015 Austin Critics Table Awards: best dance concert for IGNITE: Three Works, and best short work for On Truth and Love.

Performa/Dance is a sponsored project of the Austin Creative Alliance
