Every performance of DWDT invites me to feel something new. Every aspect and detail is thought provoking, beautiful, emotional, and highly skilled from the choreography, to the dancers, the costumes and the sets. I look forward to each new experience that Dominic Walsh and his dancers produce. They deserve international recognition for their art!

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

highly skilled and passionate people who are dedicated to showing people the importance of dance.

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...

very excited to be part of such a great Art organization that inspires them.

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

give to Houston more performances and create interesting work and collaboration with more artists in the community, taking Houston's contemporary scene to an international level.
