Founded in 2004, PushPULL Dance is a company of adult dancers from a variety of backgrounds, who share a common passion for dance through performing and enhancing our individual dance repertoires. Many of us have busy vocations or demanding commitments that keep us busy "in real life" but we come together for our love of dance and performance.
What we represent
We value diversity, creativity, community, and camaraderie.
We strive to be inclusive by welcoming technically proficient dancers as well as individuals with minimal training but who have a passion for dance performance and a willingness to commit to learning dance at a required level. PushPULL welcomes adult dancers of any age, gender, culture, or body type.
To date, PushPULL has featured an expansive range of dance styles including jazz, contemporary, modern, ballet, tap, hip hop, swing, salsa, African, Bollywood, and traditional Chinese dance.
Through the diversity of our members, we are able to create shows that embody a variety of dance styles.
We encourage you to read more about Our Commitment to Equity, Diversity, and Belonging for more information.
