Dancers Lisa Fitzgerald, Justine Sheedy, Brooke Wasserman in M-Theory in 2011

History

Dimensional Dance officially began in 2011. The first performance was at the Ted Hershey Dance Marathon in February of that year with the piece M-Theory Beyond String Theory under the name Dimensional Dance. The piece was created in consultation with Princeton University Professor Chiara Nappi, wife of physicist Ed Witten (who conceived of the idea M-theory).  Our second year Ruth Lewis created Wyeth for the Wadsworth Atheneum photographed above with Arien Wilkerson and Matisse Madden.  Since then we have been creating dances and shows that inspire and educate the public about dance in a variety of dance genres.
