Against the Grain/Men in Dance celebrates and promotes the performance of male dance artists of all genres and ages through its biennial festival performances and educational workshops.
We believe that male dance performers bring a unique strength and dynamic to the stage that is often overlooked and underserved in our society. We commit ourselves to the following goals:
- To create performance opportunities for men of the dance community, whether aspirants or veterans.
- To encourage male and female choreographers to create dynamic work for male dancers.
- To provide our audiences with exceptional and diverse high quality performances.
