Heidi Duckler Dance (HDD) creates place-based dance productions, activates spaces all around Los Angeles while connecting with communities whose voices we listen to and seek to amplify. Our work strives to democratize dance, provide innovative arts education, and promote spatial justice.

HDD’s Founder/Artistic Director Heidi Duckler is a pioneer of site-specific, place-based contemporary practice. Through the use of expanded techniques and a methodology that encourages us to understand how dance, born from our experience, can be a tool for expanded awareness. HDD invites our fellow humans to reconsider the spaces in which we live, the spaces we take up, and this helps us to communicate our personal experience to others, to speak up, to inspire, to incorporate hard truths into the vulnerable body and pursue the search for empathetic connectivity.
