Presented by North Central College Fine & Performing Arts at North Central College - Pfeiffer Hall

Parsons Dance is a New York City-based modern dance company, internationally renowned for creating and performing contemporary American dance of extraordinary artistry that is accessible and enriching to diverse audiences. Founded in 1985 by artistic director David Parsons and Tony Award-winning lighting designer Howell Binkley, Parsons Dance is known for its energized, athletic ensemble work. It has collaborated with iconic artists across all disciplines, including Billy Taylor, Milton Nascimento, Allen Toussaint, William Ivey Long, Donna Karan, Annie Leibovitz and Alex Katz. Parsons Dance continues to pursue its mission to deliver positive, affirming, life-enriching experiences to audiences worldwide by maintaining a repertory of more than 75 works by David Parsons and producing his new work. It invites established choreographers to restage works from the American canon on the company and commissions young American choreographers with its newly launched GenerationNOW Fellowship. This yearlong mentorship under Parsons culminates in a commission that premiers as a part of the Parsons’ season at the Joyce Theater and joins the company’s touring repertory for the following season. In addition to choreography and performance, Parsons Dance engages audiences of all ages through education and outreach programs. The company hosts post-show discussions, open rehearsals, studio showcases and open company classes. Parsons Dance offers three weeks of summer workshops in dance and choreography for preprofessional dancers as well as in-school workshops for public school students in New York City.
