The Seldoms is comprised of artists and educators who introduce the performance work, dance technique, and artistry in inventive, focused ways to better connect with audiences, students and communities. We are dancer-athletes, thinking artists, generous facilitators, research fanatics, and dialogue promoters. We build movement that aims to communicate big ideas and subtle distinctions, that comes from a foundation of anatomical understanding and modern technique, and contains our 18-year history of making performance.
We conduct an annual summer intensive and open our company classes to community. We appear at forums for arts, education and the humanities throughout Chicago such as the Poetry Foundation and the Chicago Humanities Festival.
The Seldoms is in residency at Pulaski Park, through the Chicago Park District’s Arts Partners in Residence Program, which unites artists and communities in Chicago’s parks.
