Described as “emotional and kinetic” (San Francisco Bay Guardian), PUSH Dance Company performs vibrant contemporary dances, providing audiences an opportunity to examine issues of identity and intersecting cultures that surround and affect us all. Founded in 2005 by Artistic Director Raissa Simpson, PUSH maintains a philosophy that bold movement and intellect can coexist.
PUSH has presented countless interdisciplinary works vivifying the personal, untold stories of individuals from unique and overlooked communities. The Company annually produces PUSHfest & PUSHfest Awards, a cross-genre dance festival that brings together existing works by choreographers working within different dance disciplines and boasts a Dance Education Outreach Program that brings high-quality dance artists to teach throughout the Bay Area.
