The Johnson Company
Rooted in the budding but diverse Columbia dance community, The Johnson Company (JoCo) aims to disrupt ideas about contemporary dance while providing outlets and opportunities for people to consume dance in new ways. Their work combines the smooth, contracting movements characteristic of contemporary dance with the staccato, rhythmic movement personified by our dancers, all while exploring the nuances of pedestrian movement. Through personal investigation, improvisation, transparency, and group work, The Johnson Company comes together to create work that appreciates the past, is grounded in the present, but reaches towards the future.
To provide space for movers of different backgrounds to learn and grow through investigation and storytelling.
