Dubbed “smoldering” by The New York Times, Mark Stuart Dance Theatre brings gravity-defying movement and dramatic storytelling to the stage, screen, and printed page.

Under the artistic direction of award-winning choreographer Mark Stuart, Mark Stuart Dance Theatre expresses the physical and emotional rawness of human relationships through a bold and explosive blend of dance movement.

our mission

To form a groundbreaking style of dance through a fusion of dynamic
partnering and contemporary dance technique.

To use physically stunning and emotionally compelling storytelling to
make bold statements about the world in which we live.

To conduct cultural, educational, and charitable activities including furthering Mark Stuart’s artistic vision, producing dance theatre of the highest quality, developing new works by Mark Stuart, developing future dancers and expanding audiences.

To spread love, joy, and passion through art.

My vision for this company is simple, really. And it's all based on one question: what if?

hi, i'm mark stuart

What if you took some of the most talented dancers in the world and created a type of movement that no one has ever seen before? What if you use that movement to tell stories in a visceral and emotionally compelling way that has a social impact on the larger world? What if a small group of people choose a moment in time to come together and make a difference? A moment to see beyond, to see within, to see each other. What if?
