Chaddick Dance Theater is a participatory group of dancers who have come together to express common life experience through modern dance and dramatic forms. Our purpose is to create works that reflect the social, emotional and physical experiences of our dancers, our audience, and our community, and in so doing, reveal the fundamental humanity that connects us all. In our performance and education programs, we encourage freedom, humor, and playfulness in the creative process while validating personal risk-taking with both physical and emotional expression. Our originality lies in creating a human connection through dance. Chaddick Dance Theater has been nominated for several award nominations throughout the years from the Austin Chronicle.
