Deeply Rooted is a community dedicated to nurturing artists, supporting human relationships and sharing common values through engaging in dance.
The mission of Deeply Rooted Dance Theater is to re-imagine and diversify the aesthetics of contemporary dance by bringing together modern, classical, and African-American traditions in dance. In its uncompromising pursuit of excellence in performance, the development of new choreography, the training of dancers, and the creation of a diverse audience, the company seeks to demonstrate how art and beauty play a transformative role in society.
Through discipline and rigor we can all achieve artistry in whatever we do. Owning the artist within us is an opportunity to give flight to a vision of profound humanity. Art is essential to life because it is about human expression; it is about reflection; it is about communication. Art is as fundamental as breathing. Just like we need air to breathe, so we need art: it is really just that simple.
