Novel Dance Company is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to the education, recreation, and professional development of dance.

Our mission in action presents through an annual large scale performance; our 2024 performance is titled 'Its all a F*kn Lie'

March 9th 2024

Its all a F*kn Lie is a dance performance that flips reality on its head, revealing the absurdity of our existence while drawing inspiration from the philosophy of mindfulness and the transience of life. With a dash of irreverence and a healthy dose of humor, this dance extravaganza will have audiences laughing, questioning, and embracing the chaos of the present moment.


Made possible under CXF The Platform, a residency & grant program provided by The Medium and the Tyson Family Foundation.
