Urbanity Dance is a Boston-based contemporary dance company that celebrates its fifth anniversary this year. Urbanity’s more than thirty company dancers come from strong technical backgrounds, and use formal training in performances that aim to push boundaries and affect change. Community workshops and open classes celebrate accessibility to the arts, and performances are often a product of cross-disciplinary collaboration with other local musicians, fashion designers, and even architects.
Urbanity has performed in venues across the U.S., including Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival in the Berkshires, the Dance Gallery Festival in Houston, and the Alvin Ailey Citigroup Theater in New York. Most recently, Urbanity was awarded Best of Boston’s 2012 Dance Company by the Improper Bostonian. Urbanity also hosts The Boston Contemporary Dance Festival, which occurs in August of each year.
