The Frame Dance Community Ensemble is an invitation for dance-makers of ALL abilities  (ages 12-99) to show up authentically and create in community. To engage the right side of their brains, reconnect their minds to their bodies, and collaborate in the creative process. To share their unique stories, challenges, triumphs, and deep wisdom through the art of movement.

During classes, workshops, and rehearsals, we focus on creating site-specific work grounded in modern dance technique that challenges perceptions and expectations about ageing.

Led by artistic director, Lydia Hance, ensemble members create and perform alongside professional dancers and teaching artists. Together, we encourage support, and inspire each other to grow beyond our comfort zones and tap into our creative potential. Over the last 10 years, the Community Ensemble has performed in a variety of venues throughout Houston.
