“They are dancing for their own lives and for the lives of women all over the world…”—Caroline Palmer, Star Tribune

Ananya Dance intersects contemporary Indian American dance with a philosophy of social justice to create original dance theatre about the extraordinary work and dreams of women around the world. Inspired by the commitment and passion of women’s movements globally, their work links women’s stories with movement to invoke broader questions about social justice. Ananya Dance envisions an ensemble of dancers whose embodied power and beauty create seismic shifts in the ground on which they dance.
