Red Dirt Dance was founded in 2005 by artistic director Karl Rogers. From humble beginnings (a show in a loft space that used to be a 2nd grade classroom) to theatrical venues throughout the midwest and northeast, the company now calls Rochester, NY home.

With a particular blend of dance and theatre that merges virtuosity of the body into real world scenarios - romantic breakups, office settings, and domestic bliss - Red Dirt Dance showcases the dancing body as an invitation to imagine the possibilities of human interaction; the dances are interdisciplinary storytelling at its best.
