What We Do
Heidi Duckler Dance creates site-specific performances that transform spaces. By migrating off the stage and into surrounding environments, Heidi Duckler Dance invites audiences to see their communities in a new light.
Heidi Duckler Dance was founded in 1985 on the belief that the arts can change our vision of the world – and of ourselves. The company’s contemporary dance approach values freedom, community, and inclusivity. Through performances, Heidi Duckler Dance reveals avenues in which Los Angeles can become a more inclusive and equitable city.
To date, Heidi Duckler Dance has produced over 500 original site-specific works. Performance locations have included the Ambassador Hotel, Los Angeles City Hall, and the historic Bendix Building to name a few of many. These performances have spanned genres and themes, ranging from outdoor art festivals to riveting shows at healthcare facilities.
In addition to its performances, Heidi Duckler Dance spearheads a variety of contemporary dance education initiatives. Heidi Duckler Dance’s education programs have reached a diverse set of individuals each year. Its youth arts education programs have served over 10,000 youth and families, surrounding over 25 schools and community centers in Los Angeles.
As the company continues to grow, Heidi Duckler Dance is excited to bring you along with it.
