Art of Motion Dance Theatre
The Art of Motion Dance Theatre is committed to a unique artistic vision honoring legacies, celebrating collaboration and expanding creative boundaries. Lynn Needle, former soloist with Nikolais Dance Theatre and Olivia Galgano, former principal with Ballet Russe have created original work on the company that has developed into a vast array of repertory honoring the complexities of dance as an art form. Their work is continually evolving, has a clear aesthetic base in the classical ballet and modern dance legacies with repertory featuring contemporary street dance. The synthesis of movement is unpredictable, theatrical and accessible; highly sophisticated yet street savvy.
Needle and Galgano continue the vision and commitment to mixing genres, multimedia and theatricality by collaborating with costume designer, Annie Hickman, lighting designer, Ruth Grauert, various musicians and composers who have created original scores for their work, and choreographic collaboration with former Pilobolus principal, Kent Lindemer.

The company is available for national and international performances, tours, festivals, galas, museums, and global events, and thrives on extensive and individualized collaboration with colleges, universities and various organizations. The AOMDT is based at Art of Motion, a professional studio school and incubator theatre space.
