Company 360 is a body neutral dance company that creates two original, full-length, narrative dance works per year. What is body neutral? It means that we do not discriminate by the size or stature of our performing artists.
We strive to be the counterpoint to the notion that dancers must fall under a certain purview of height and weight, or that they must bend to specific gender or societal norms that do not serve our audience, communities or the endemic culture of dance to date.

What makes 360 different?
First, we believe in the power of art to tell stories and effect change. Through this power we actively work against dance "isms", advocate for gender neutrality, open communication and promote transparency wherever it is needed.
Second, we create 2, full-length, completely original linear narrative contemporary shows per year, utilizing a variety of dance styles and complementary scores. Although we will tour our works eventually, regionally we continue to push forward creating new works, new stories, and new movements from and for movements.
Who is a 360 Dancer?
Company 360 houses a wide range of working professional dancers, bringing their time and talent as performing artists and technical dancers of the highest caliber and ethic.

Our 2022 Pros
ProCo & Core ( 18+ )
All our dancers audition at the same level as we strive to be as non hierarchal as possible, and fight as many of the competitive or toxic norms in dance as we can. All dancers must be part of our community for a show (the equivalent of half a season), to be considered for Core, our invite-only, professional focused story drivers. All our pro dancers receive free dance class, performance opportunities, and a united community for life. Consideration for all dancers is based upon role modeling, tenacity, worth ethic, and performance (always performance).
Our Spring '22 Trainees
Training + PrePro ( 13-17 years )
Our high-school dance trainees are focused on performance, passion and purpose, while being exposed to the inner workings of a career level company. Dancers gain exposure to new choreographers, styles of movement, and mental practices, while having the opportunity to participate in at least two original, linear, full-length contemporary ballet works per season right alongside our incredible pro dancers.
Carving out a "next step" for our training company, our PrePro company has been established as an invitation only track with the additional honor and opportunity to train and dance alongside our Core company.
*Although auditions are free, those accepted into the Training and PrePro companies are responsible for a per-show fee that supports training, facilities, rights, scholarships, and our Art-Advocacy-Accessibility initiatives.
Our Spring '22 Youth
Youth ( 8-13 years )
What started as a kind, cathartic outlet for young dancers wanting the chance to perform and honor their training studios has grown. 360YC has shifted to become a premiere, challenging, creative home for serious young dancers wanting to inhabit roles and be role models in equal measure. The trainees and pros that they share the stage with now operate at such a level that these incredible youth dancers have little choice but to achieve rehearsal and performative excellence; all the while working within a culture of inclusivity, respect, and friendship.
*Although auditions are free, those accepted into the Youth company incur a per-show fee that
supports training, facilities, rights, scholarships, and our Art-Advocacy-Accessibility initiatives.
