With inspired and innovative original dance/theater productions, Word Dance Theater’s sophisticated integration of dance, theater, and music has repeatedly created new and exciting viewing experiences for the public, all while paying tribute to the choreography and philosophy of Isadora Duncan. National Public Radio says that Word Dance Theater is “equally as innovative as modern dance’s firebrand, Isadora Duncan.”
The Washington Post called its latest dance/theater production, Once Wild, “An important creation” and “a bold new work of art.”
Word Dance Theater is the premiere modern dance company in Maryland offering authentic reconstructions of Duncan’s masterpieces and new choreography within a theatrical context with concert-quality live music. WDT offers main stage productions, salons for intimate non-traditional spaces, master classes, lecture-demonstrations, and residencies.
Word Dance Theater offers master classes and workshops for professional dancers and community movers, lecture demonstrations, and residencies; all facilitated by Kennedy Center teaching artists Cynthia Word and Ingrid Zimmer. Fees for these programs range from $500 to $5,000.
