CONTRETEMPS CONTEMPORARY BALLET’S MISSION IS TO CREATE OPPORTUNITIES FOR DANCERS AND DANCEMAKERS WITH IDENTITIES AND BODIES THAT ARE UNDERREPRESENTED IN BALLET.

INTRINSICALLY RADICAL, WE BELIEVE IN INNOVATIVE BALLET THAT EMBRACES BODY POSITIVITY AND THE NON-BINARY, REPRESENTS THE UNDERREPRESENTED, AND SUBVERTS EXPECTATIONS.  WE ARE INTENTIONAL IN CURATING WORKS FROM WOMEN, PEOPLE OF COLOR, AND THOSE IDENTIFYING AS LGBTQ+.  WE FOSTER A NEW GENERATION OF DIVERSE LEADERS IN THE FIELD BY PROVIDING MENTORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES.  WE PRODUCE ORIGINAL WORKS OF PROVOCATION AND URGENCY.
