Choreographer Amy Marshall and Executive Director Chad Levy co-founded the Amy Marshall Dance Company in 2000 in order to realize a vision of dance theater as a visual metaphor for the human spirit. Ms. Marshall’s choreography pays tribute to both the beauty and tribulations of life’s experiences through dramatic movement. The work’s emotional structure explodes across the stage with dramatic confrontation and then suddenly resolves itself into a poignancy of classical dimensions. The virtuosic performance of the dancers leaves audiences awed and delighted.

During the past ten years Amy Marshall Dance Company has performed and taught across North America, Europe and Asia. Through these performances, master classes and dance workshops, the company has inspired audiences and invigorated young dancers in a way that will both challenge and reward them all for years to come.
