About Common Thread

Since its inception in 2010, Common Thread Contemporary Dance Company (CTCDC) has been committed to the development of community-based initiatives focused on expanding creative practice and participation of non-traditional constituencies. CTCDC’s mission of community-partnership is based on pursuing excellence in choreographic practice, nurturing outstanding professional performance artists and, most importantly, helming and/or co-producing community-dance programs which enrich the lives of participants with a wide array of life experiences. In accordance with this mission, CTCDC performs at highly reputable national dance festivals, produces positively reviewed seasonal concerts, and is proactively and extensively involved in ongoing partnerships with local community programs – providing workshops, classes, and performance opportunities.
