Chamber Dance Project, dancers & musicians, is a company of professional artists dedicated to redefining contemporary ballet in partnership with live music in intimate settings heightening the impact on audiences. We are dedicated to sharing our art and exposing it to a diverse audience not otherwise afforded the opportunity.

Our work is a celebration of outstanding artists and designers collaborating on works which have a contemporary relevance and resonance. We are devoted to supporting the creation of new choreographic works and musical scores and to their performance with other contemporary works onstage as well as in film. We utilize the intimate and interactive settings of the rehearsal studio, educational classroom and the theater to share our creative process.

CDP has had an outstanding summer season. From DC to NYC, our artists have made their mark in the contemporary ballet world!


Chamber Dance Project is built on the creativity, drive and ambition of our staff.

  • The production Chant was spectacular.The ladies of N Street had a wonderful time. All in all, there were about 25 women and 8 support staff. Thank you so much for the opportunity for the women to experience your dancers and choreography. Just wonderful!

  • I was at the matinee performance on Saturday and was thoroughly happy and moved. This was also my first time at one of [Chamber Dance Project’s] performances so I was glad I tried something new. I love the Washington Ballet, so that connection was what caught my attention.

  • I DID NOT WANT IT TO END!!! Especially the second half when the singers approached and took us into another world altogether with their vocals and the performers on stage.  It was a VERY unique experience.
