Part of the Oath is a non-profit contemporary ballet company, which is the culmination of a twenty-year journey. Artistic director Colleen Cavanaugh has been a choreographer and physician since 1989 and this company represents a merging of the two worlds. “Part of the Oath” refers to the Hippocratic Oath of Medicine and this dance company is in a sense an extension of this. Along with entertaining and inspiring through the performing arts, its mission is to educate and increase awareness of health and social issues. Repertoire includes dances about breast cancer, teen pregnancy, homelessness, global peace and more recently a dance about the struggle with doubting one's inner self. The company has a strong outreach component and is working with young populations in several needy areas in Providence and Pawtucket, R.I., addressing issues of health, self-image and teen pregnancy. Current projects also include a contemporary ballet about Chicken Little, which will be a vehicle to discuss bullying.
