SynthesisDANCE’s touring program is a delicate balance of high energy dance entertainment and accessible abstract pieces with soulful organic narratives and full-bodied dance theatre.
SynthesisDANCE has created programs to build audiences, while also promoting the power of dance. While on tour, the company goes into each community with educational programs at local universities, studios and schools, community centers and libraries. Social media outreach involves video featuring our repertory around local landmarks, interviews, classes, performing for and with local dignitaries, contests, giveaways and lots of fun.
