I was not big into the art of dance... until I saw my first DWDT performance. I was hooked after that and am now a supporter of this company. It is great to have a local group of international caliber in Houston. DWDT brings a different kind of experience especially to people who may not be so inclined initially to appreciate this art form. The city is fortunate to have this group as it also serves as an ambassador for Houston. H-town is not just an oil town; it's an arts town.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

exposing its audience to new experiences that challenge the traditional and push the boundaries.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the dedication of its members, especially Dominic Walsh, to bring about a quality performance.

From a sheer entertainment perspective, I'm not sure you can find anything that really compares in Houston. Refreshing and impressive at once. The dancers, the choreography, the music, the set design - all so amazing! Romeo & Juliet blew us away. We really make every effort to attend every performance.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

extremely friendly. Made me feel right at home. I like contributing to organizations like this.

5 stars for my favorite dance company is Houston. They are constantly creating unique & inspiring work, plus they truly care about their community & collaborate with other artists regularly. And, not to mention, they are just so darn talented!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

conquer the dance world!

I first met Dominic Walsh while dancing with him at the Houston Ballet. Since those years, he has created his own dance company, which is a group of intelligently trained and exquisite dancers who perform contemporary works that speak about what it means to be a human being. Mr. Walsh brings a focused energy into the daily rehearsal process that results in a stunning product onstage. His movement is a philosophy and a lifestyle, much more than memorized dance steps. Mr. Walsh's personal motivation is infectious. I believe that I may have danced my best moments under his direction. I am very grateful for the opportunity to participate in his vision.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

put Houston, Texas on the map as the epicenter of contemporary dance in the United States - choreographic innovation begins at Dominic Walsh Dance Theater.

I'm a dancer with DOMINIC WALSH DANCE THEATER, and I'm so thankful to have found a Company that gives me the opportunity to experience the most amazing dance work of Dominic Walsh as well as the guest choreographer he brings in to work with the Company. I choose to develop my dance career with this Company because pushes me to higher level more and more everyday giving me at the same time great gratification as an artist. I feel very lucky and honored to be part of it!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

DWDT blows me away every time I see this great unsung company!!! I fly from San Francisco to see them perform in Houston at least once or twice a year. I just experienced the Mozart Trilogy the last time I came to a performance and it was spectacular. This is the most important contribution to the evolution of dance as an art form. I will continue to fly to Houston to see the great work of this revolutionary company.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My appreciation and education of the art form of dance performance

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

expand this organization with more funding, fundraising, and support for what is trying to be accomplished

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the energy, vitality, innovation and expression of the work that is being shown to the world

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

extremely kind and over the top in their assistance of my needs.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Tour!!

Ways to make it better...

I could have seen more performances

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Adequate funding support in order to do more of the kind of exciting work they are doing and for touring.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Dominic Walsh is a genius

The first time I saw DWDT perform, I knew that it was no ordinary company. From choreography, to the dancing quality, DWDT exceeded everyone's expectations I have beed to all their shows since 2008, and they amaze me every single time. What they do is more than dance, they inspire, educate and take dance to the next level. It's my favorite company EVER.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The beauty of the shows

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

extremely nice and passionate people

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Be named the best company in the millennium by Dance Magazine!
