Houston METdance, founded in 1995, strives to educate and revitalize a passion for dance through the finest instruction and performance. With professional and youth dance companies, as well as a strong community outreach program, METdance continues to be a leader in the vitality and diversity of Houston’s dance community. METdance Professional Company is repertoire-­-based company that is trained in house and is celebrating their 20th Anniversary in Houston’s vibrant arts community this year. METdance has performed throughout the United States in numerous theaters receiving high acclaim and reviews while performing works by some of the most influential and talented choreographers of our time. Helmed by founder and Executive Director, Michelle Smith, Artistic Director, Marlana Doyle and Associate Director, Joe Celej, the company is the sister organization to the METdance Center, which opened the doors to a newly renovated facility in May 2013 in the midtown district. “The METdance’s gorgeous dancers push the choreography to its fullest and most generous capacity, while sharing the joy and electric verve of their craft with the audience.” Adam Castaneda, Houston Press, June 4th, 2015.
