ABOUT 360º Dance Company

Founded in 20067 by Artistic Director Martin Lofsnes, 360° Dance Company's mission is to present classic modern dance masterpieces juxtaposed with original contemporary dance works, in order to simultaneously preserve and develop the modern dance lineage. Comprised primarily of former principal dancers from the Martha Graham Dance Company, as well as other professional artists, 360° combines the grit and passion of the legacy's founders with the fearless exploration and innovation of today's modern dance world.

Following a wildly successful premiere season at the Bærum Kulturhus in Oslo, Norway, 360° Dance Company has been featured in the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council's Sitelines Festival and the Reverb, American Dance Guild, Philadelphia Fringe and Colorado Summer Dance Festivals. The company has also performed at The Overture Center (Madison, WI), Sam Houston University (Huntsville, TX), SUNY/Purchase, Hofstra University, Merce Cunningham Studio, Ailey Citigroup Theater and Dartmouth College. 360° has spent summer residencies at Kaatsbaan International Dance Center and Perry Mansfield Performing Arts Camp, and has been regularly featured in the Historic Dance Theater Foundation's "Dance is a Weapon" lecture demonstration series.

In June 2010, 360° presented its premiere NYC Season at the esteemed Dance Theater Workshop (now New York Live Arts). The company returned to DTW in June 2011 for another full-length performance season, hailed as "Uniformly powerful [featuring] exhilarating glimpses of our modern dance heritage performed...with equal parts passion and reverence" (Gus Solomons in Solomons Says). 2012 marks 360° Dance Company's Fifth Anniversary Season, which will include a preview event on June 16, 2012 at the Ailey Studios, and a fully produced performance season at the renowned Ailey Citigroup Theater in October 2012.
