Mission & Vision

Our Mission

Dancers’ Studio West is a production and resource organization dedicated to the evolution of contemporary dance practices. Through research labs, technical training, public presentations, and community support and engagement, we create opportunities for learning, exchange, reflection and the development for practitioners and the public alike.

Our Vision

Under the Artistic Direction of Sasha Ivanochko, we explore the body, and the questions of our time that impact and inform it. We are committed to supporting the dance artist at each stage of their career, and seek to increase their capacity to research, experiment, innovate, create, and to develop their career. Our programming provides opportunity for both technical advancement and resources for visioning, reflection and risk-taking. We are community driven, and organizationally, we strive to be nimble and to remain responsive to the ongoing developments of the field of dance.
