Partner With Urbanity

Urbanity partners with a myriad of organizations to present quality dance experiences on and off the stage. We believe wholeheartedly that a community's relationship with its artists sustains and uplifts both partners.  Through interactive performances, residencies, workshops, and tours, Urbanity aims to transform and empower people from all walks of life. 

Performances: 30 to 45-minute interactive presentations tailored to the needs of an organization (i.e. museums, universities, hospitals).  Our professional dancers and youth company bring you a unique and colorful performance. 

Residencies: 45 to 60-minute classes that run for multiple weeks tailored to the needs of the participants. Each class is formatted to include a warm-up, across-the-floor sequence, technique work, a choreographed number, and improvisation. Residencies are led by one of Urbanity’s professional teaching artists. 

Workshops: 45 to 90-minute class session exploring hip hop, contemporary, and world dance. The class includes a warm-up, across-the-floor sequence, technique work, a choreographed number, and improvisation. Workshops are led by one of Urbanity’s professional teaching artists and tailored to the participants. 

Behind-the-scenes Company Tours: your own personal guide to Urbanity Dance, led by one of our staff members. Tour the studio, observe a company rehearsal, participate in a movement workshop, and join the company dancers for a Q&A.
