Dance Exchange is a professional company of dance artists that creates, performs, teaches, and engages people in making art. Since its start in 1976, and in each encounter, the Dance Exchange asks four questions: Who gets to dance? Where is the dance happening? What is it about? Why does it matter? The Dance Exchange answers these questions by pursuing a range of interrelated goals: to create groundbreaking new dance works; to implement innovative educational programming; and to collaborate on effective community engagement projects. The Dance Exchange specializes in non-fiction dancing, and recent work has focused on land use, energy, and even wind power. The organization partners with many groups committed to environmental preservation and community health. The Dance Exchange's management policies are very much in tune with this artistic work. The organization's leadership thinks a lot about current issues like sustainability and energy conservation and wants to be as responsible as possible in its physical space. In addition to purchasing renewable energy certificates, the Dance Exchange also prints on recycled paper and is involved in a comprehensive community recycling program.
