Using dance as a tool for social change, Avodah Dance brings the art of dance to diverse populations with the goal of uplifting individuals and building community. Avodah Dance offers residencies, workshops, and performances in women’s prisons, community centers, and synagogues, universities and public schools as well as traditional theater venues. Originally established in Tallahassee, Florida by JoAnne Tucker and Irving Fleet in 1973, the company’s rich background of text study, collaboration and cultural appreciation eventually brought it’s expansion (and current base) to New York City in 1983. Throughout it’s history, Avodah Dance has been recognized and awarded by many foundations as a vital force for multicultural artistic expression and communication.
