Founded in 1996 by dancer, teacher, and choreographer Lucy Bowen McCauley, whose dual training in music and dance is the hallmark of her choreography, Bowen McCauley Dance Company is known for its live music, talented corps of dancers, and rich collaborations with outstanding designers and musicians. Through performances, workshops, and community outreach, BMDC energizes audiences with its signature style and introduces people of all ages to the joy of dance. The Company offers dance residencies, master classes, workshops, and performances to over 12,000 youth, seniors, and people with disabilities – including free weekly dance classes for people with Parkinson's Disease and their care-partners in Virginia and Maryland; a free, year-long dance residency to majority-minority students at Kenmore Middle and other DC schools; and free daytime concerts and instruction to entire Arlington public school populations. Winner of numerous honors and awards, Bowen McCauley’s work has been called “courageous and well-crafted” by the Washington Post, which also describes the group as one of the area’s “premier” dance companies. Your spirited participation is invited!
