Reshaping the world of dance, one dancer at a time
At Metamorphosis Dance, our profound belief in the transformative influence of dance drives us forward. We see this art form as possessing an extraordinary power to inspire, foster connections, and shatter barriers. Our company is dedicated to breaking away from traditional ballet norms, embracing dancers of all gender identities, races, shapes, heights and weights. We believe that the art of ballet should be inclusive and reflective of the diversity that exists in the world. Our commitment to this mission is evident in our rigorous training programs, tailored to support the unique attributes of each dancer, ensuring they have the opportunity to flourish and shine, regardless of conventional expectations. By celebrating diversity in our performances and encouraging dancers of all backgrounds to join us, we are not only pushing the boundaries of ballet but also fostering a more inclusive and accepting community within the dance world.
