TRDance is a center for promoting the highest level of professional performance, education, and community outreach. Through innovation, creativity, and inclusion, we explore modern dance and contemporary ballet that enrich the culture and community of the Mid-Atlantic region.


By celebrating our true individuality, we develop a stronger self-worth and therefore a stronger dance community. Each unique perspective plays an essential role in the creation of our own art form, the strengthening of the human spirit, and the common bonds in our community.

We seek to establish a culture that ignites a passion and appreciation for all forms of dance and that develops the next generation of professional dancers, students of all abilities, dance educators, and audiences for this ephemeral art form. We accomplish this with our five core values of excellence:


The fusion of imagination and intellect is the essence of the human spirit that strives for new ideas and a vision beyond ourselves.


By honoring our rich history, embracing the present, and promoting a constant evolution, we illuminate and endow the future of the art form.


We are stronger together, we strive on working with others to affect change in our community and the world around us.


By spreading knowledge of the history of dance, we are able to positively impact the experience of our current audience.
