Dimensional Dance was established by director Ruth Lewis to inspire and educate through and about dance.  Ms. Lewis started the company in 2011 with the dance piece M-Theory Beyond String Theory exploring movement and forces.  Since then Dimensional Dance members have been choreographing pieces and programs that bring art to life.  Our newest piece, Fierce Like Frida tells the story of Frida Kahlo, her young love for Diego Rivera and the support of her family helping her through a terrible accident. We will be performing our  new program Dance History Live: Ballet to Breakdancing with Fierce Like Frida for the 2019-2020 season.
