Sarah Bush Dance Project (SBDP) formed under the artistic vision of Sarah Bush in 2007 to promote innovative artistry, community interaction, and feminist ideals through the creation and presentation of multimedia dance. SBDP creates dance that reminds audiences of the power and compassion in ourselves and others, bolstering a resilient hope for humanity.

Our 2018 premiere Spirit and Bones is an evening-length intergenerational and multimedia performance using dance, visual design, and live original music to highlight female resilience in times of darkness. Inspired by Clarissa Pinkola Estés’ book Women Who Run with the Wolves and national debates around women’s validity and rights, this evening-length production will highlight female resilience in times of darkness, the tenacity of the individual woman, and the ferocious love and strength generated by community. This is SBDP’s fourth and most ambitious show yet.
Save the date! – October 26-28, 2018.
Sarah Bush Dance Project finished off its 10th anniversary season with the 2017 sold-out premiere of Homeward, exploring the ideal of home — safe, solid, reliable, personal — and then, just like that, it can be gone.
