Red Stone Dance Initiative
Red Stone Members, 2015
In 2008, Red Stone Dance Initiative was added. Red Stone, a youth modern dance organization for young dancers ages 10 and older, offers the opportunity to be part of Morgantown's first junior modern dance company. Angela Dennis, artistic director, saw the need to artistically and creatively showcase Morgantown's young, talented dancers.
In addition to choreography and performances, Alchemy Dance Project and Red Stone Dance Initiative positively impact children, students, and communities through master classes, workshops, volunteerism, and more.
Both Alchemy and Red Stone have companies of spirited, trained dancers, both mature artists and fresh faces from the local community.
Auditions for Alchemy and Red Stone are held annually.
Our vision is to cultivate appreciation, education and inspiration within the community through extraordinary artistry, high quality performances and innovative choreography.
We are committed to maintaining and enhancing this mission by:
⋅ providing a company comprised of professionally trained dancers with a diverse repertory
⋅ sustaining an environment where dancers can thrive and further develop the art form
⋅ creating and evolving a company that is accessible to broad, growing audiences
⋅ implementing meaningful programs for non-professionals
