We are a dance company for dancers who want to change the world...one dance at a time.
Accendo: "To illuminate, kindle, inflame."
Accendo Dance Company... exists to illuminate the injustice of our world with the grace, beauty and compassion that come from a language deep within our souls.
Accendo Dance is a company for dancers who...
.....believe dance can inspire change ....have hearts for those who are victimized by injustice ...want to make a difference in the world
At Accendo Dance Company we are committed to making a difference and we recognize that the difference starts deep within our own soul. We do not see our dancers as one dimensional performers, but as soulful artists, called to illuminate injustice with truth, hope and healing.
We are committed to developing work which challenges the boundaries of dance and refuses to be neatly categorized, but rather which engages on a deeply soulful level, for that is where genuine transformation begins. We are a company for dance artists who are called to be cultural prophets - shining a light into the darkness of ignorance and injustice and inspiring change.
We dance because we have no other choice but to dance We dance because it is the only way for our souls to breathe We dance because we have a gift that is meant to be given We dance because we are called to bring grace, beauty and compassion to illuminate the dark places of pain and injustice in our world.
