SIDRA BELL DANCE NEW YORK is a boutique brand of prolific movement artists that is rapidly gaining an international profile for work that reveals aspects of the human condition through a distinctly female lens. Bell’s creations have been described as, “brainy, exuberant, and audacious.” (San Francisco Chronicle). The work demands both physical power and tender expressiveness from her crack ensemble of “fearless and technically honed dancers” (Vancouver’s Georgia Straight). The Company has performed extensively throughout the USA, Europe, Canada, and South America. It was listed as “#1 in Contemporary Dance” by the Pittsburgh Examiner (2014), as one of ArtsATL’s “Notable Dance Performances” (2012), and in the “Top 10 for Best in Dance” by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette (2010). Bell’s process is intuitive, collaborative, and emphasizes the integration of multiple design elements. Her work combines design, media, and fashion creating a singular vision in contemporary dance. Sidra Bell Dance New York was recently awarded the National Dance Project (NDP) Production Grant from the New England Foundation for the Arts to develop a new work MÖNSTER OUTSIDE to tour in 2017-2018.
