About Treehouse Shakers:
Founded in 1997 in New York City, Treehouse Shakers mission is to create original dance-plays that encourage multi-generational audiences to experience a connection to their community. Our young audience programming is unique in its offering young audiences a guided look at modern dance through powerful and meaningful theater. Our work is sometimes the first performance, specifically in viewing dance, which many young people experience. Treehouse Shakers creates work that experiments with narrative styles and explores the story's elements through the abstractions of modern dance. Our performance repertoire includes thirteen original works that addresses every age-level within youth programming. As one of New York's only dance-theater companies solely creating original work for young audiences, our goal is to provide inventive, intelligent and engaging performances that nurture creative thought and inspire dialog. With each new piece, we challenge ourselves as artists to not only create the highest caliber of work, but also to create work that will stimulate, connect and entertain our audience members. Ever increasing our reach we tour nationally and partner with local schools and non-profits to provide subsidized tickets to underserved and low-income youth and families. Complimenting performances, Treehouse Shakers provides teacher trainings and residencies for students that focus on the art of dance and storytelling.
