About Treehouse Shakers:
Treehouse Shakers mission is to create original dance-plays that encourage multi-generational audiences to experience a connection to their community. Our purpose remains as it was when we created our first dance-play in 1997: to capture the artistically rich beauty and simplicity of the human imagination. Melding modern dance, music and interactive visual elements with a script, our repertoire includes 16 works that explore narrative styles through universal themes addressing every age level within youth programming. Transcending race, gender and socioeconomic status, past themes have explored imagination, courage and integrity.
As one of New Yorks only theater and dance companies creating original work for young audiences, our goal is to provide inventive, intelligent & engaging performances that nurture creative thought and inspire dialogue. With each new work, we set the bar higher, challenging our artistic process and the thinking of young audiences. Increasing the reach of our work, we tour nationally and partner with local schools and non-profits to provide thousands of low-cost tickets to underserved youth and families. Helping solidify our role in the American theater, we were the first U.S. company to tour a dance-play specifically for babies. Complimenting performances, THS provides teacher trainings and residencies for students that focus on the performing arts through storytelling, dance, music, theater, and writing.
