Jane Franklin Dance celebrates movement through partnerships with music, media and visual artists, and community participants.

Movement makes you feel good, changes your outlook, and dance makes it easier to be comfortable in your own skin.

The artistic work often places dance outside of the traditional dividing line of audience and performer. It sets the framework for collaborations with visual artists to explore the body in relation to environment, setting or architecture.

Our upcoming work Niche finds Jane Franklin Dance in a landscape of recycled materials from UpCycle, an Alexandria-based creative reuse center. A niche is a best fit, a sheltered space, a situation for success or an environment that suits a particular being. The work incorporates the collection and redistribution of objects to tell a story reflected by light and shadow, framing an ordinary couple as a dynamic unit searching for a place called ‘home.’ Featuring live music by Mark Sylvester with additional music by Eclipse Chamber Orchestra.


Where: ATLAS Performing Arts Center, 1330 H Street NE, Washington D.C.

Presented as part of INTERSECTIONS at the Atlas Performing Arts Center – eight days of performing arts that celebrate the diversity, energy and excellence of artists and audiences from DC and beyond. Feb 20 – Mar 7, 2015.

Jane Franklin Dance is often out in the community with family-friendly performances, after school workshops, and through intensive camps. Story-telling through movement is much like illustration is to a picture book. What we learn while developing movement and dialogue through the lens of the book we bring to our summer camps. It is a circular experience, with one aspect informing the other.

Forty+ is a group of performers past the age of 40. The strength of Forty+ lies in creating choreography and collaborating during the rehearsal process. Workshops and performances takes place at centers serving older adults. Participants are English-as-second-language speakers, have differences in physical facility, culture. Moving together changes the way you experience the day.
